    Johnathan welcome to the skunks club. We all been there. You did have some excitement with the nice runs tho. I just can't get myself to use that big of baits. When I have tried larger baits it seems the hook set doesn't happen too often. Regardless thanks for the post an wish you better luck next fishing trip!

    good luck to you buddy, just keep trying, and don't give up, you have made all your other goals, just keep in mind some folks try for years and give up, keep at it and when you do get it, the victory will be oh so sweet:wink:
