    I've been putting a lot of time on the water with my good fishing buddy aka. Trollmeister and so far tis season the best we could bring in was a few fish in the teens. That all changed Saturday night when I was able to not only hook into but land my PB blue cat at 45.5lbs. Looks like persistence and patience has paid off.
    Seeing the fish swim away after being weighed was just as exciting as when I first saw it come to the surface. It is a day I'll long remember.

    Hi Terry Congrats buddy! I was going to fish saturday at the Vine but had to take care of some chores. Details Terry, where did you catch it? what bait where you using? I was talking on the phone with a mutual friend of ours and he told me, it was one of those nights where one big fish was going to be landed.

    Thanks for the replies everyone! It was definitely an experience I'll not soon forget.
    Jaime, our friend was right, it was definitely one of those nights. This fish was the only bite I had all night long but when it hit it was like I had snagged a bus on one of the L.A. freeways. It hit and didn't stop. I know who you are talking about and he has been very helpful to me as well as some of the other big names here in So. Cal.
    The fish was caught on bonito near the dam. The cool part of the whole deal was releasing the fish and seeing it swim away to hopefully be caught and released again.

    777, I don't know how I missed the thank you button on your reply yesterday but it's there now. Thanks.
    It was very gratfying to see the fish swim away and so far no one at the lake has seen it so it looks like we did it right.
