Please don't take my comment as being a negative. It isn't. I just don't think that we should get hung up with 1 method being superior to another when such a good fish is being discussed. 10lb fish aren't exactly commonplace these days are they ?

Excellent fish Steve, you were certainly "wearing the bass pants".

Rightly or wrongly Keith I suspect we all have internal hierarchy of how we ideally like to catch our bass. For me its shore better than boat, lure better than bait, surface better than diver (because like Daz, to me there is nothing so exciting than the attack). Ten pounders are indeed special and your fish Steve ticks all the boxes so adds even more value to an already rare event.
