    the man who took the pics for us was fishing a live gill my daughter katie caught (wouldnt let her poor ole dad have it ) and hung a real good blue but it spit the hook. he then rebaite dwith some skips that we left him and hours later he hung another fish he says he fought it for a long while before it broke his 80 pound power pro , so they were really moveing there last night .
