    Figures, some dude goes out in the daylight fishing for bass with a rubber worm and catches the fish we all spend our lives trying for. :eek:oooh: Nice fish though for sure, I gotta hit that lake up sometime but its a looooong ways from here.

    right! and those mono guy are going to love this cause it says that he caught it on 14lb. but the thing is that he never took the fish to a certified scale so who knows how much it really weighed but it is a big fish.:crazy: i bet its the one that broke jasons line:eek:oooh:

    Well, we are giving Jason another shot at a big one tonight! Hope he connects to a toad!!! Going to my favorite spot of all time with Overkil, Jason, and great friend of mine Frank, and myself, Not San Carlos, but I think it is better! Mono is fine in open water, I would love to see anyone use even 40 pound mono in the area Im going tonight. One spot I go to, the water is like three feet deep, but 30 yards out it drops almost strait into a hole that is 20 feet deep. if a fish connects your line rubs on that shelf and by by fish! To many sharp rocks, and that is the problem with mono, one tiny knick, and the line loses its integrity. Of course he caught it when he was bass fishing, Its like vinny383, took him the first time to a local spot to fish for flatheads, and First fish of night was a 26 pound 14 ounce striper! Inland water state record that got filleted before we knew it was a record!!!!!! But we got the pics and a witness so oh well.
