    You just can't keep a good man down. Way to go Eric. By this time tomorrow there will be 50 boats set up on that hole unless you photo shop the background in the pictures!!!
    Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Congratulations...W

    Well im getting sicker everytime he calls, he said he just caught a 35lber. He caught it on his Gator rod and it broke his line at the boat, right after it broke off it went straight down and grabbed his other line and he caught it, still had the hook in his mouth from his other pole. I hung up on him because he was getting another bite. Im sure we'll hear all the stories later. He says he has it video taped so it should be fun to watch.

    Now you all know what would be funny, and that would be if all those phone calls were to be sure to get the whole board all worked up into a frenzy when in reality, he is sitting at home downing a cold one watching Oprah in his Wonderoos Pajamas and getting a good laugh at our expense.... Now we all know that any catman worth his cut bait would never do anything like that to the rest of us here at work , right?? Mellon?? Flathunter???? Never, right????;)

    PS I really hope its all true!!

    He must still be working with Photo Impact to get the fish to go from 7.5 lbs on the scale to 75 lbs.
