    Just wanna say thanks to all the guys in here and ive been reading everything baits,methods ect...

    40.1/2lbs By pole on the Missouri River on Skipjack...

    My biggest before was 13.lbs.Ive always fished parks.. Till i ran into him.
    Fishing for blues for 2 months.

    Pics were taken at a friend Bait shop (367 Bait Shop St. Louis MO) who's been teaching me the ways of big blues.I couldn't have done it with out his help.
