    Yesterday 5-4-2008...I went out with a couple freinds of mine to show them some spots to fish for blues. To my delight my brother in law caught a 40 lb right off the bat!!! Then about 10 minutes later i hooked into this 51 inch long 34 inch girth BEAST!!! Took me 30 minutes to land this thing on a very heavy rod and reel with 80 lb PowerPro braided line. It was a time we wont ever forget. I think my freind is hooked on catfishing now!!!!:roll_eyes:

    Congrats on a great fish. yeah if seeing someone catch a fish like that doesn't hook someone into fishing for them then nothing will.

    Good gravy Wade, that is one nice hog you caught. Congratulations to both of you on a great day of catching. I bet the water ran backwards for five minutes from where you pulled that bad boy out. Did ya'll catch them on the Chick?
