    yes! i finally got a good blue this year! caught him below cannelton dam this morning on small chunks of skip jack. baby skips are everywhere right now and i was taking 4 of them and cutting the tail and head off and threading the mid section onto a 9/0 mustad j-hook. fished yesterday evening in the same spot and only caught one 7 pound blue. fished the sandbar last night and wound up with 9 channels caught on junnies wicked sticky. got up this morning and went back to the rocks not expecting to do much and caught this monster. my scales said it weighed 45.5 but i believe my scales are off a bit. i later wieghed an 8 ounce sinker and my scales said it weighed 7. i know the batteries are low in it. the fish in my avatar is 52 and this fish was much bigger than it. i was thinking this fish was closer to 60. what do you guys think. either way, this was one hell of a fish. and yes, he's still swimming! can't wait to get back over there!

    Well Keith unless you carry two scales in the boat for comparison you have to go with the weight that it shows. I wouldn't concern myself too much, its just a number, and that's still an awesome fish.
