    Steve, That's an awesome fish ! I bet Barb was trippin with that hoss on the line , huh ? How long did it take her to get it to the boat? I ain't hung but a few like that on rod n reel, but they always managed to break off, before I could get em in.... Whatcha using ,65# Power Line on your reels ? I have a gaff, but always seem to forget it when I get a good one on. I tore my dip net all up when I dipped up that thirtyseven pounder. That net wasn't nearly bout big enough !:smile2: If I don't go to Clarks tomorrow evening to check on renting a cabin, I may come sunday. If I do, I'll swing by and chat with yall a little while.... Thanks for posting the big one !:roll_eyes:

    That's for sure man ! The last good one I heard caught was July fourth, seventy two pounds, jugging ! We had one on about four or five weeks ago, wasn't quite as big as yours but a pretty nice one. I got him to the top and seen that he was barely hooked in the lip so when he lunged, I let go of the noodle, and Collie grabbed it as it came by the back of the boat and pulled loose before he could get the net under it.... I think we both got teary eyed on that one....I know there's some good ones in the river, and somebody's gonna catch one someday 'bout a hundred pounds. They are in there, I promise you !:wink:

    It's another name for a trash fish called gaspergoo, or a freshwater drum; a big ole buffalo/carp lookin' critter. Eric/Gooboy's holding one in his avatar picture. He always offers up a "reward" for the biggest one we catch. They really aren't fit to eat....yuk!
