    They won it with a tournament record 106.95 lbs. Second place was a very respectable 82 lbs.

    Cool stuff. I wish that we had tourneys out here. Not that I would ever have a chance at winning but it would be interesting to watch!

    Hey, I was at mountain island this week. That was an impressive catch. Did you get a picture of the gizzard shad that came out of that one catfish? That would be a cool pic

    Yes, humbling.

    We had a good day, a great day, and when 63 pounds popped up on the scale for our total weight I was even happier. On a normal day that weight had a good shot at winning, but like I told Billfish76 when we were out there, "if we found them, someone else did too."

    And they did, in a GRAND FASHION!

    I think it was probably even more humbling for Kevin Custer and Jerry Hilderbran. Those guys have fished and won a lot of tournaments on Mt. Island Lake and know what it takes to win. Their 83 pounds would have won 9 out of 10 events there. Another awesome sack of fish.

    Omar, Tracy, Jerry, and Kevin are some amazing catfish anglers. Congrats on an AWESOME record breaking tournament day on MIL!!!

    I beg to differ sir. I took the photo right after it came off the tourney scales 49+. That fish was fat from one end to the other and it was every bit of the 49 the scales said it was.
