    My nephew and I went fishing last night on the Mo. We caught some smaller fish during the night but around 2:00 am we were beat and ready to head in. About that time my nephews rod bent and the fight was on! When the smoke all cleared He had a very nice 38 lb fish. While admiring his catch I heard my rod take off. After about 20 minutes I finally landed the biggest fish of my life, 64 lb. If I never catch another big one in my life that will be ok. i now have the fish and this story to see me through.http://http://s55.photobucket.com/albums/g135/bombsmasher/?action=view&current=bigdaddys010.jpg

    Well, congrats on the pbs. I share the opinion that a fish that size should be photographed on the river right before you put it back. But thats just me.
