    Thanks to Rogers Inspiring tale of breaking his own skunking streak, I decided to see if I could break mine tonight, and whaddaya know, I DID!!! This 30lb Channel fought me tooth and nail from the second he hit the bait til the second he hit the banks, as you can clearly see in the picture I am hunched over from exaustion from fighting this monster..... strangely enough though as soon as he hit the banks, he suffered from shrinkage much the same as Rogers 50lb Flathead...What is it with these darn shrinking fish?!?!:eek:oooh:

    Yeah them fish do squirm a little when they're on a scale, but that's cause they're still hungry, I figure you should always feed the fish real good before weighing it..... I hear after eating about 5lbs of leadshot they hold plenty still for the scale.:wink:

    well, i can understand why that would work, i mean after eating turkey and thanksgiveing dinner i allways seem to settel down.something eles i have been seeing, she buys them camras at the dollar store were you get 2 camras that have 27 pics each for 8 or 10 bucks for the fishing box, well it seams to me that them cheap camras, with there jap film in them cant seam to keep things in the right sequness, what i mean by all this is i got a 25lb flat this saturday, but in the pic it looked like a 6 lber, at first, i sead it was all b/c of the angel she took it at but she didnt think so. so im just going to say its got to be that cheap camra:angry: dam that jap crap
