    Well brothers I finally did it I broke my personal best. I caught a 57lber tonight. It was 45in long 29in in girth. What a hog shoot it was 7in from eye to eye. I also caught a couple little fellers. I took 2 years but I finally did it. I was using about a 2lb carp for bait. It was a perfect cast to I must of threw it in his mouth. I cast it out and no sooner than I set down my clicker was a peeling. I didn't think nothin of it. I figured it was my bait. I set there for about a min and it didn't stop. I was talking to myself saying this dang on bait I wont never know if I have a bite. It just keep on running so I picked it up and set the hook and it was like I set the hook into A log. I knew then it was on. After about what seemed like an hour prolly 20 min I landed him. I caught a 30lb last night. What a good last couple of days its been. Here is the pics

    You caught a 57 on the GMR. Way to go man. I think that is about the biggest I have heard of on the GMR. I think someone is taking fish out of the very popular ******* down there and throwing them in your hole. :lol: Keep it up man.
