This is why Uncle Jeb starts out by telling you about stopping for fried chicken for lunch at sea and getting caught in the storm before telling you about catching the giant red snapper using a piece of that chicken as bait when his lures were tossed overboard because of the storm. Otherwise it wouldn't make any sense. Where would the chicken have come from? Why would he not just use regular lures or worms? Not only does telling the story in chronological order make more sense, it works with the plot and helps to build up to the climax.
