    Caught this beast last night (5/11/07) on the Wabash River between Fort Ouiatenon and Granville Bridge near Lafayette. Bank fishing with the head I cut off a Drum I caught earlier in the evening. Fish damn near pulled me in while i was trying to loosen the drag! 42.5 inches and about 40lbs.

    oh yeah. love it when they about pull you in. or when you gotta dive for your pole because you were busy trying to find that hook you just put down right there but isn't there anymore.
