    Wish it was mine but it's not.This is the big Blue that Claudia (Rusty's wife} caught up at Warsaw ,Mo. on the Osage River last Fri afternoon.It weighted in at 42lbs 12 oz.W.T.G Claud. Only problem is she got it in the boat just before the contest started at 3PM for the big fish at the 5 th annual Missouri Gathering.
    Congratulations Claudia on another great catch.
    Rusty ask me to post the picture but I'll let them tell [The Rest Of The Story!!]

    Thanks John for posting the picture. The fish was hooked around 12:25 Friday afternoon the battle was on. she had the fish almost up to the boat 7 times and it would rip drag off and she would have to fight it back again.The fish was wanting to stay on the channel side of the boat so she moved to my seat. She was really putting the heavy on him and crack the boat seat gave away , she fell backward into the boat. I was trying to help her up and all she could say was grab the rod don't let him get away. I grabbed the rod and held it till she could get back in her seat. by this time we had 6 boats anchored around us watching the fight. At 2:00 O'Clock she finally got the fish where I could get my hand in his mouth. The fish was in the boat... Cheers were heard from all the other boats. we snapped some pictures and I slid the big blue back into the water. I was a little worried about the fish not being able to swim off after a hour and a half fight, but with in a few seconds back in the water he ripped loose from me and back to the deep he went. I told he last night if she didn't start letting me catch a few big fish I was going to quit taking her. hahaha...
