    Well I left the scale at home again. But, my son landed a est 25lb blue today at Wheeler Dam Alabama. It was 33 inches long and had a girth of 24inches. What a gut! We have caught several 14-15 lb fish this year that were weighed and released. Also released 4 others today. He also caught a 18-20lb that measured 31 inches. We brought home 12 fish the largest was 11.5lbs. We gave some bank fishermen 4 fish at about 7-9lbs each.

    Man that fish is chunky! Nice catch. Looks about 25#. The biggun in my avatar is 35#, the next biggest is 22#. That one looks at least 25 if not a little more. Keep it up!

    Craig, congrats on your son's N.P.B. Bluecat. That fish looks to have an over-eating problem like me! LOL!
