HE IS A MEMBER BUT HIS PUTER IS DOWN AND I HAVE THE ONLY PIC THAT I HANG GRACIOUSLY ON MY WALL IN MY GARAGE ...SO I THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE IT.THIS FISH MADE US REALIZE WE NEED BETTER EQUIPTMENT AND SINCE THEN WE HAVE REACHED THE 25LB CLUB IN SEARCH OF BIGGER AND HOPEFULLY NOW WE HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BRING A MONSTER IN NO MATTER WHAT IT IS
