    Well last night we caught only 1 fish. It was another good one though. I've been on a roll. This fish is a shared venture. It was caught on Elizabeths medium action kmart spincast that I put 20 pd braid on (glad I did that) but we were up on the road and my oldest daughter did a good job grabbin the pole on it's way into the river and did the first half of the fight. When it headed into the tules I took over and got it out of there. Handed the pole to Elizabeth and she finished the job.

    I am one happy camper. Though I could use some sleep.

    Woops forgot. The fish was 22 lbs by my new mustad scale. The B&B bait shop scale usually gives me 2.5 or 3 pds more so I called it 23.

    thats weird, it looks like a 30 to 35, , size and weght are deciving, you cn get fish almost twice the lethe but way way less than the one that looks biiger, see my bluecat, in my album it was 15 yours is three times the size, and my scale is very acuret, bathrom needle scales are goog, just do some math, and you got the weght, might vry 2 lbs
