    The shake-inducing strike of a huge black bass savaging a top-water lure at dawn is as addictive as free donuts in the break room at work. Once bitten by the top-water bug, it becomes part of your fishing arsenal for life.

    Many anglers, especially those who seek game fish such as black bass, trout or striped bass, release their catch.

    “Catch and release works and is a good thing,” said Dave Dreves, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “But, if you don’t handle the fish properly, your good intentions can be reversed.”

He knows how to get guys to do things they need to do in order to win. He takes an interest in them and  makes them all feel important.”
