    I finally caught my first big blue. Its nothing huge 31 lb (My avatar pic) But I am still ecstatic about it. I have always wanted to hook into a bigger cat and I was not dissapointed when this guy took off running and my baitclicker was going nuts :crazy:. He took me 10 minutes to land and I caught him off a big shad head in the Chickahominy River. :cool2:

    Great fish, congrats. It feels good to land a big one. If you weren't addicted before you should be now.

    I have always been addicted to fishing since I was a child, but until a couple months ago I only fished for channels, and a 10lb was huge:crazy: lol. I just came back from deployment in august and looked into fishing here in VA, and just followed the crowd and upgraded my gear for bigger fish, and I doubt ill ever go back. :wink:
