    I can't keep up with tank or scott with the big numbers yet, but I did manage this 34# fish last friday. I consider this my personal best since it's the biggest I've managed without a guide. They keep inching up in size every time I go, so maybe something in the 40# range next.

    The thing that struct me about this fish was how small its head was compared to the gut this thing had. These fish are not starving in the James...

    The one in my avatar is a 46# fish I caught with a guide, so I don't consider it my personal best. The 34# fish attached I caught on my own, so it's now my personal best.
