"a lot of things end up different from where they start"
2 August 2009 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

And this episode is one of those things, actually no, it is not and I will tell you why. Jumpin' Crack Bass begins with a "old-school" fishing ritual of a father and his son, certainly is Hank and Bobby going out for the normal bait, you know the hand-dug American worm but before they get to sit on their boat for lots of hours without doing nothing (it's great when Hank explains to his son what is fishing all about) they discover a criminal trying to steal Hank's truck. The "father and son fishing show" will certainly change and we will have Hank as a hero who gave the thief to the authorities but that will also change, I mean here Hank will give up to the use of the hand-dug American worm for fishing and his new fishing bait will not only make of the usual hours of doing nothing on the boat really busy hours (fishing will be for Hank a real addiction! And he will want ALL the new fishing bait) and change the ecosystem but also it will make that Hank visits the court not as the arresting citizen (really he just went with Jack the fisherman for a better fishing bait! Certainly it really won't be a good story to avoid the charges! Oh, and I love Dale's, who will go to court together with Hank, bits here: "I followed you. Every twist and every turn…by the way, I'm gonna need to follow you home") however in the end things will go back to normal, to where they started…no more crack cocaine as fishing bait!
