was out on the river today, and was not havin ANY luck at all, after about 4 hrs, i finally get a hit on a rod, half way through the fight my other line goes slack, so i let it go till i got the fish in, 15 lb flatty, i grab my other rod and crank down on it, get that in 22 lb flatty:smile2:, thats the good news, bad news is the 22 was gut hooked so bad, all 10 inches of leader and the swivel were down its throat and the 15 was gut hooked about halfway up the leader:sad2:. now im a big fan of CPR but i wasnt sure if either of em would make it, especially the bigger one. i didnt want em goin to waste and die in the river so i kept them:sad2:. i dunno how gut hooked fish do after they are released, but i use 10/0 hooks and cant imagine a fish survivin with that lodged in thier guts. after that i just called it a night. will post the pics tomorrow mornin.
