    Jimmi, way to go, that must have been a lot of fun. Biggest we've landed so far in the last couple of weeks was a 12+. We're looking for "The Biggun" too! :D

    Way To Go, Chicago. Thanks for posting the pic.

    About how deep were you fishing? And, what were you using for bait?

    Nice fish, the biggest I have caught was 15 pounds. That was a long time ago back in the early 80's
