    We went down to Monty this morning about 7:30. We Started off the morning with an 10.2 lber. The day just got better from there. We ended up with a 40.6 , 32 , 7 , 6 , and 6 fish in the 1 - 3 pound range. Not a bad day of fishing even for a beginner. Thanks again to fightindablues guide service for teaching me so much. Every one of the fish were caught and released successfully. :wink:

    I think I might could have got another bigun today but all I had was bream and 1 lg mouth bass about 8inches which had a biguns name all over it but when I casted it out it hit the bimmi top and went flyin off my hook. Got luv them lg mouth bass the best bait around sometimes.

    Man that was one awesome day fishing. I bet Mrs Amanda was upset she had to work. Sounds to me like you went from rookie to pro in no time. I still havent broke the 40lb blue mark. Congrats!
