    Well, The first place I stopped I wasn't there 15min. when the first rod went down, grab the rod made about three cranks and he got off. Put hat rod down and the other rod went down.That 16lb'er made a mess with all three of my lines. About 15min. later the outside rod went horizontal big time. Finally got him in and it weighed 25lbs. I thought, man this is going to be a good day. Never caught another thing. Oh well, it was nice just to get out...
