    Been fishing with and working for Capt Hugh Self for about a year now, and have boated several big blues with a PB of 69#'s until this past Sunday. New PB is 84#'s!! :big_smile:

    WTG Jason!! That's a whale of a Blue!! Congrats.

    Hey! What ever happened to Randy Harris of Black and Blue Custom rods. I remember he used to guide with Hugh Self. Randy made some great rods and I'm a proud owner of one too. Heard Randy moved back to California. Can you relate to this? Just wondering!

    There's no way thats a real fish. You painted a Volkswagen beetle to look like a catfish.:wink: Nice catch.

    Wow, Jason! If I held that fish like you're doing there, I am sure that I would be laid up with back trouble for quite a while! :big_smile:

    Welcome to the BOC, and congratulations on a great PB. :0a25:
