    Man, it finally happened! I've fished and fished and caught a bunch of 20's but only a couple bigger than 30. All that time on the water finally paid off, got a 62lb blue! I can't even explain the feeling when it hit the top of the water...beat my previous PB blue by 17lbs! Just wanna say thanks to everybody that's helped me since I've joined the site, if it weren't for the BOC this fish probably wouldn't have happened!

    Nah, they are Beereadys. I like them b/c it's one bolt and they come out which is good b/c I bass fish a lot too and it's easy on easy off. They don't look like much but if you've got your drag set right they're plenty sturdy.

    Congrats on your personal best Wes. It looks like you got em on the Glow Stick, It was crazy reeling in a 53 on one for me so I know your 62 was awesome lol

    Yeah, as you can see he sure put some bend in that pole LOL! If I'd have had any idea how big it was I'd have put a lot less pressure on him but that Glow Stick held up as did my little 6000 and 25lb test!!

    AWSOME CATCH !!!!! is that a glow stick that you got loaded up in your third pic. if it is, it would make me a lot more confident in mine.
