    Hey guys-guess i'll be that "new guy" for a while,but that's ok with me. BTW, hey Jeff!! (i'm the guy you met @ DG Wed. morning & got bait
    with ya..i see i'm not the only one who can't remember a name :big_smile_2: LOL)
    Anyways, my wife (ladyjack)and i met on the water around 6pm and tried a couple spots till dark-thirty with no results. We moved out to a shelf to work both shallow and deep, and all 4 rods started getting hits, but became a real game of patience. Finally,around 10:30 pm, one of my rods bent & started peeling off line so fast i couldn't hardly lock it down. It was a battle for 15-20 mins. or so before i got her(or him) in the boat, but WOW what a monster! The scales read 42lbs, but was decreasing fast so we worked with her till she could swim away on her own. So it wasn't long at all till another rod went crazy & Lissa had a fight she won't forget for a while. Just like a pro,my girl did good!! A 2nd PB @ 25lbs! What a night to remember.(BTW,both fish were in the shallows)...Randy
