    Just got off the phone with a friend from Richmond who was in a tournament last night. They had a giant fish weighing in at over 93lbs with unofficial measurements of 50in long and 36in girth. The proper authorities are supposedly on their way to certify the fish as I type. I will keep the updates posted as I get them. Later for now---jonnycat
