It's the mouth that gets you.
You hook a huge largemouth bass and all you can see is a giant, angry shaking mouth.
The size of the mouth lets you know this bass is one of the top ones you've ever hooked. You realize the giant, gaping shaking bucket with your lure impaled in it is the biggest you've seen. This can cause dry mouth, uncontrollable shaking and panic.
