    That old fart is a member of the BOC. There is more of a story on the Mississippi thread.

    Probably didn't have a cell phone and didn't want to jepordize the fish's life. Commendable.

    Those pictures are good enough for me. No need to stress the fish, any more that neccesary.

    I'm curious if that is a standard practice of fish and game, to confiscate the fish (if that's what happened) and put it in a tank. Was it the game warden or the fisherman's doing? I can't understand why fisheries would want to see that happen anymore then us.

    Thats some monster for sure! Oh Radish, thats his best blue so far, but not the only BIG blue he has caught! The Mississippi is HARD to learn, but its the home of some MONSTERS!:crazy:

    Congrats to Oh Radish on cathing that Blue on Rod and Reel. As far as the guy selling out, I'm sure he had good intentions of the fish living on. I heard he got $100,000 for it. Can a person turn down that kind of money?

    He is a BOC member he goes by "radish" and it was just him and his wife in the boat. I beleive he didnt want to take a chance on killing the fish and i respect that. The pics are enough for me to know that he probably caught the world record.
