    Well I caught my personal best this weekend. :smile2:
    It was a Blue 32.5" long, and these old scales I had said 12 pounds or so, but it seemed heavier than that. I was a great fight. I must confess that I did not CPR it, but I promise I will next time for a fish over 10 pounds. It was an awesome fish, and the biggest I ever caught.

    I appreciate all the good advice and enjoy the threads on here. Now I am fired up to catch an even bigger one!
    Thanks

    Congrats on a great lookin fish. Dont worry about the CPR. Just try to practice Selective Harvest and do your thing. It wont hurt anything to keep a nice one every once in awhile.

    Thanks for all the comments, and for making me feel better about not releasing it. And it was a good supper- grilled 1/2 of it :wink:. And the other half is in the freezer.
