God I love catching the big blues. Am I the only one that gets that rush??? I took my father in law out Saturday and he caught a solid 30# blue on 12# line fishing with a live shad. He fought it for at least 30 minutes, thats one minute per pound... he is 80 and gets so excited when he hooks a big one as I do too. We lost another big one that I estimate at 250#s or so, maybe not that big. Hell guys even if you arent fishing and catching lets get to lying at least. The 30# was true but the other was a lieguess... I just made that word up. Wake up Alabama.
