    I've been putting in a lot of hours this spring in search of a new PB which sat at 54lb.

    I was able to put my boatmates on a 47 and a 49 and I was able to catch a couple thirties, but no real big ones for myself.

    Well all that came to a screeching halt last night when I set the hook into a nice 48x32 57 pounder!


    The first two pictures are the 47 and 49, and the next three are the 57 along with a video.

    Let em go so they can grow.

    Very good job on the flats and good for your buddies also. The one you caught in the vidio is awesome, can I ask what kind of vidio camera were you using? If mine will do anything close to yours I will be good with that.:wink:

    Thanks guys



    I usually use my still camera (Canon A540) but just recently have been using a camera called Flip Video. Very compact and easy to use. Flash memory and can hold 1hr of video. It even has a flip out USB adapter for easy downloading.

    I think you can get one for less than $150.
