Link didn't work for me.

Kelly Galloup says that he catches most of his big fish on streamers fished in the shallows.

Once fish get beyond about 24", Kelly thinks they are large enough that they don't fear overhead predators. They are too big for eagles and osprey. The shallows are where the small fish hide from predators, so he things that is where you will find the big fish that are on the feed. It makes sense to me.

Fixed the link.

Seems like pretty logical thinking that they would be where the small fish are.

Reminded me of the one liner in Jaws "We're going to need a bigger boat." Or in this case a far larger net. The Swan Dive was a perfect ending!

That's a hell of a fish. Matt did it great job getting that bugger to hand. I'd have done the same.
