    Went out to meet Jim White last night at Salt Fork lake. It started off me catching what I thought was a good sized 10 pound channel. Then a few hours later Jim landed this 18 pound 34 inch beast on a live Shad! Had a really good night fishing with Jim and looking forward to the next! Heres some pics.

    Dang! Always knew there was big channels in there because they eat my flathead baits. Congrats Jim!

    thanks guys had alot of fun it s been along time since ive had that much fun. thanks kip for posting the pics wish we could have got a flathead but i think the cold spell shut the big boys down for few days .if you want to come back downone day next week just give me a call. i just wanted to say thanks kip for showing up. you are a great guy and i can say ive got another fishing partner. all i can say is watch kip and i catch some nice fish at the ohio gathering .you are welcome to stay here at my house anytime you want to crash after fishing. it really felt great being able to fish all night again and it really made me want to get back to the way i used to fish again. im fishing a tournament saturday night with another great friend jason. then im going solo sunday night then back with kip next week. i promise to get you a 50lb plush fish this year kip. thanks again kip. you got my number call me anytime

    Hey Jim, if you find the time to line a 50+ lb. fish my way, I won't be mad. Good to see you getting back out there and nice channel!
