    Well...... I finally broke the 40lb barrier. Pulled an alnighter and Was fishing a local tournament on the Minnesota river with my fishing buddy gabe. We found a new spot that looked promising. We were using bullheads and large suckers. The monster hit about 10:15pm.

    She came in at
    44 inches in length
    28 inches in Girth
    44.02lbs in wieght

    I heard my fishing rod make noises that I never heard before. I thought she was gonna break a couple times.
    We also managed a large Snapping turtle in the wee hours of the morning thing seemed to go 15-20lbs.
    Hope mine is the local tourny big fish. I'll let you know later on.

    thanks
    Larry
