    Well, once again my wife showed me how it’s done and beat her PB Blue by 25 pounds. We fished the TN river this weekend and within 30 minutes at our first spot, her rod doubled over with a 55 pound Blue on the other end! It put up a great fight and we were both very excited. We photographed, weighed and released the fish. That night, I hooked into a MONSTER fish. This fish was fighting harder than anything I have ever hooked. I struggled to move it off the bottom, it was big. Well, my line (80#) broke after quite some time. I think I had the fish about 25’ off the bottom in 45’ of water. Was I ticked off? Sure, but I obviously had not done a thorough job of inspecting my line. Next time.

    But I told my wife, “This is why I fish. This is what keeps me coming back. This is why I love to pursue big cats.” At least I have a picture of the fight to remind me of the fight. Right? (attached)
