    Well finally!! My wife and I went fishing last nite at Pickwick Dam, Tn. We got there round 9:30 pm and stayed til round 3:30 am. We were fishing from the catwalk in about 30-40' of water with nightcrawlers. I had just got a nice blue about an hour earlier than this one that weighed in around 4#. This big boy was layin on the bottom and did not want to be brought to the surface. Man did he put up a fun fight. When I got him to surface and near the water edge I had to hand my pole over to Punkin and go down to get it by hand. I was afraid it was gonna get away cause it had started rollin and tryin to break line...It did break about the time i got my hands on it. I really didnt imagine gettin one this big and wasnt as prepared for it as I had thought. But we got him in and boy was it ever an exciting nite. Well, best of luck to the rest of ya.

    Congrats Hershey the Cable Guy Jr!!!!!!

    Now ya just need to get Leslie on one like that. Wait, no you don't. I don't think the BOC servers could handle the size of the post she'd make. Nor could you live with her if she caught one that was bigger than yours.

    Yup, that settles it, keep messin with her bait and keep her from catchin one like that!
