    Hello all,
    We went Saturday to pick up Brooke from her trip to Rend Lake...While we was there we descided to go out and give it the ole try and see if we could pull off catching one...Well as it turned out we caught my PB and 7 others sure was a nice day...Boiling hot on the water but well worth the trip...

    We ended the day with 8 fish and a new PB at 32.8 lbs...It was a great fight and sure was a ton of fun...

    Here are a couple pictures of the trip...

    Great job Paul. That is an unbelievable stringer of fish. Looks like the flatties have started biting at Rend!!
