    Finally!

    Last night I finally had a friend around when I caught something! Now I've got me an avatar photo (only been trying to get one for about a year...).

    This is an 11-pound blue from the Chickahominy River (just before it flows into the James R.) in Williamsburg, VA taken last night -- 6/6/06 (figures -- lol). This one was pretty nice, and just a "typical" catch there -- they get MUCH larger from this location; personal best is 25#, and the best anyone seen hauled to the dock with rod and reel is about 63#, though they get even larger from time to time (though folks I've talked to haven't actually seen one larger than that landed completely, or it has been from a boat nearby).

    Anyway, I'm relieved to finally have picture evidence, and that now I show up all "official-like" and everything! Fun night last night.

    Thanks y'all!

    It was gratifying to finally have somebody around to "officially document" the occasion -- this way folks I know will certainly know I ain't blowin' no smoke.
