What a great year for me! * I fished Roosie Friday through Sunday... ~ Friday night, two fish~ 11lbs~ Live Gill. 20lbs~ Live gill. Saturday night, Two fish~ 27.11 lbs~ Gill 66lbs~ Cut carp~ Truly a memorable fight.. He ate a carp head hooked up with a 10/0 Khale. The only reason I was able to land him was because he turned around after his first run, and went the other way, (just before he spooled me). After a few runs, it went under the boat and lay on the bottom. It was like pulling a car off the bottom of the lake. What a rush when I saw its huge head break the surface. My buddy was quick with the lip grip and snagged it up good, brought it over the gunnels and I was staring face to face with the biggest cat I have ever seen... Amazing.. I was shaking for the rest of the night.. ~ Before I was able to get that line got re-rigged, My bait runner was spinning. Then I set the hook into another giant, 27lbs.. (I have never seen a 27lb cat look sooooo tiny.. * At the Marina, it drew quite a crowd.... I have never had my picture taken soo many times before.... I submitted a state record form at the marina, Hope I can get in the books... WHAT A NIGHT!! The Big boy is 53" length and had a 32" girth! I Bottomed out Roosie's new scale... And the net was too small~ Used the Berkly lip grip. Here are a bunch of photos.
