    allright guys and gals, yours truly finally managed to pull it together and get off the dam skunk list. went out lastnight/this morning and got into some good bites, the first of which landed me this 24.9 pound blue.

    it was my buddies birthday and he wanted to get some cats. unfortunatly he did not manage to land, what appeared to be a 50-60 pound flathead. that sucker slammed my stump puller, and peeled about 40 yards off in 10 seconds. the 10 footer was bending in half, and my buddy looked at me and said "what should i do"....to which i responded....."pick up the rod!!!" he tussled with it for a while but couldnt manage to get it under control before it got over the wing dike we were fishing off. and then i heard the pop, and a hook came flying out of the water. dam! got to see it a couple times and it was a pig.

    too bad no birthday fish for him. but a very merry un-birthday for me......lol

    What happens if everybody gets off the list? Does the lowest weight get the prize?
