    BOC member chubbahead and i hit one of my lower gmr (great miami river, Ohio) holes today, he ended up catching a 30lb flattie (think its his PB for a river....?). this fish was actually the same fish bryan mellon caught ( pictured also, his PB) about 2 weeks ago. it had the hole in the lower jaw where the stringer was and had the clipped fin on its back as well. it is very possible i had even caught this fish sometime in the past as well, i used to clip the back "fat" fin on fish over 20lbs in this hole, i couldnt tell if it was something that was intentionally done or he cut it himself on a rock or something. release the big ones to fight another day! http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n277/dinkbuster1/100_2817.jpg http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n277/dinkbuster1/100_2776.jpg

    Nice fish and nice proof of CPR. Just think what that fish might look like in another few years!

    CPR works for everyone out there. Sure some don't practice it but, they reap the benefits of it as well.
