    A few of us went fishing tonight at the neuse river.Only caught one fish all night but it was a beauty.Ron caught this Fish at about 9:00 on cut shad.We called TJ to bring his scales and they are off by about 5 pounds so were are estimating it weighed right around 49 pounds.Ron made sure it was ready and it was released and swam away strong.Here are a few pics
