    sounds like an amazing day out on the lake. cant ask for better results without being greedy. and im sure you didnt mind netting fis for your brother and son. i love netting fish for my friends and family. i get just as much joy and sense of being proud when i am there with them and get to see their faces. and i am sure that is what you were doing all day.

    James,

    You can go anytime you like! The other two were a 14 blue and 3lbs channel. We fished many more hours than Bruce, that's why I said that. Hey, Iv'e been skunked on that lake many times. I'm taking my 3 1/2 year old son up Friday and plan to camp out over night.

    No Can Do! I forgot the digital camera and I had to use the back -up throw away. I still have several pics left to take before I get it developed.

    I do have a pic of a 112lbs. from monty! I'll see if I can find it and hope my scanner doesn't make a mess of it

    A 112lb blue now I know I will have to see that. That would be the state record.

    There is actually another 112lbs blue that was caught more recently and the picture of it is posted in the store (Monticello EZ Mart) right there at the lake, hwy 215 and hwy 99. I think the person who caught that one is from union, not positive on that.

    Not one to stir the pot here,but the pic of the fish in the Monty Ez Mart is no where close to being 112 lbs:crazy:,thats pretty clear to anyone who has ever seen many big cats in person:confused2:,that fish dont even look near as big as the 80lber PopPop,caught at Monty:wink: and it was witnessed and photographed by at least 3 other folks:eek:oooh:,jusy my 2 cents worth,I know if I caught a 75lber and had proof of a 112lber i would be knocking on the door to WalGreens to get some film developed bright and early and also hitting every newspaper in the State that I could,not to mention someone with a certified scale.:cool2:
