    No I didn't keep em. It weighed right at 46 pounds, I didn't have a tape to get a lenght on it though.

    This was down at the Hartford boat ramp south and east of Des Moines.

    Caught a 25 pounder a week later...still working on getting the picture up. Im not real talented with posting pics.

    It looks like Todd is doin better than last year. It was pretty quiet a year or two ago but he was puttin his time in.
