    be easy fellows hes new to the site. thats why i posted his pictures. let him tell the story. maybe he took the fish to a holding spot for a certication. he may not be able to tell the story at this time. i can just about assure you that fish didnt come out of that creek but he will tell the story.

    That is a nice catch. A buddy of mine got an 89#er 6 years ago so I know the feeling. Its good to be in the 80 pound club. I know the story will be great as that is a catch of a lifetime. Thanks for posting.

    Jeff, Yeah, I put him back in today, after keeping him since Saturday. It took that long to find certified scales to weigh him in. He did pretty good in my father in laws creek though. I didn't have to even revive him. He took off. The biogolist who witnessed the weigh in said he probably weighed a little more than 89, since it was three days before his weigh in.But he's waiting on the next land, but I bet it will be a while before he goes for a shinner. Eric
