    got out tonight for 4 hours no bite started pack up to head home when the last rod i had to reel in the clicker started to click real slow. i had a big live shad on i let it go for a while not turning off the clicker as i didnt want the fish to feel the tension let off so i set the hook and the fight was on after bout 15-20 mins most of that trying to net the fish while holding the rod. got her in and WOW what a fish she was 50 1/4 inches long. my scales said 63lb that was a great feeling man. first time fishing tappon also just looked at the map found 2 spots i really new fish were gonna be. WHAT A FISH.
