    Cat369,
    Cool share bud.
    I like to think , when those fellas get off that late in the game, "I got the best out of them and didn't have to get the knife out."

    Getting to touch him would of made the deal a little sweeter but ya got to feel him , the hook set and him pulling back when that rod bowed up. Thats why we go ehhh?

    Just don't take a lot of hooked up time to make it a real special day.

    Congrats , and now that ya found them, I bet it won't be long till there are pictures to go with the next post.

    you may need to change knots on your hooks. Where you using a polymer knot?

    Floyd upgrade your line size to 30# Berkley Big Game. You could also use a larger shock leader (50#). Go get that big boy.
