    She caught this last night in the river. She let it run with the bait ,giving it about 100yds. of line before closing the bail and setting the hook. It made three good leaps into the air like a Tarpon. It took about 10 minutes to get him to the bank. She has caught many 6-9 pound cats and carp and said this fish fought harder than anything she has ever caught; even though it was just under 5 pounds, and 36 inches long !!! -Thanks
