    Stuck him Friday night about 1:00 am.

    the second pic is my buddy holding him, he's 6'1 and a solid 290.

    Scale was at 91 lbs when it broke (cheap), guess I'll never know for sure exactly what he weighed.....but beating my personal best by 20 lbs is good enough for me.

    Wow! That is sure some fish. It's a shame you didn't get a weight on him. Congratulations!

    All right Shane, awesome fish... what did you catch him on? That area is definitely trophy waters and can easily see the next record blue coming from there. Congratulations

    :worship: Nice fish, Thanks for sharing. looks like the time to be fishing is now, judging by the fish that have been caught in just this last week. Time to put up the piglette poles and get the hog rods out.
