    Way to go! You could use one of those pictures for your avatar. Let me know if you want to and need help.

    What body of water were you fishing? You don't have anything listed in your profile, that's why I ask.

    I went down to the mouth of highrock looking for a decent place to put my boat in the water so i could fish upper high rock/yadkin river. I stopped at york hill access where 85 crosses yadkin and throwed 4 rods out 2 with live brim 2 with cut bait. Waited about 40 minutes then the rod went down. After 45 minutes of fighting him i got him to the bank with 25lb line. I packed my things up then headed back home. ill be back to high rock/yadkin very soon. Wanted to go scout out the area to see if my boat could be put in at york hill before i drive down there. I coulda just got lucky or there could be some big fish in high rock.

    Nice fish, I hope you released him after the photos. It'd be a shame to kill a fish that big for a picture.
