    Had to share another pic of a fish my son caught this evening. Weighs in at 12 lbs 14 ounces and is 31" long. Caught off of pepperoni. This is the largest fish we have caught in the pond since we have lived here. We do throw them back.

    I got some catching up to do.

    Nice fish. Tell you son congratulations! It looks as big as him! Pepperoni huh? Never heard of using that for bait. It wouldn't work for me because pepperoni doesn't last around me! LOL

    Id get a new scale. That fish looks alot bigger than 12 lbs. Granted its a kid holding it, but 31 inch channel are usually at least 15-20 lbs. Nice Catch none the less. Congrats to the kid. :big_smile_2: Id guess that channel to be pushin 20 lbs. easy. :wink:

    Funny, aint it? We all took our kids out fishing hoping they'd get the big
    one and make us look foolish. I think it has to do with the big grin we
    can't get rid of afterwards. Truly a nice fish, there!
