    As you might have expected, this isn't a fishing report. My wife had a 10.1lb baby boy yesterday. :big_smile: We landed him via noodling. He was in tight cover right below the lungs. I guess the high water had him pushed in close to structure -- right where we thought he would be..

    He measured 21.5" which would equate to 3.48lb if he were a bluecat -- so he's been eating well. His name is Bo Grayden and I'm sure he will be responsible for a plethora of nutrolls in the future.

    We were obviously surprised by the size as I'm not a huge dude and my wife isn't a huge gal. Nessie or Pearl, can you gather a drop of Ratman's blood?? I'm gonna need that.

    I will upload a pic once I get a modest one.

    Hey Greg CONGRATS on the little one. Thanks for doing your part to ensure the 'nutroll' tradition lives on. I'm sure his daddy, uncle pearl and uncle nessie will teach him well.:smile2:

    Does that mean you can go fishing again?:big_smile:

    Actually......he has been tying leaders all morning. I'm off to basspro to purchase a smaller cast net for lessons tomorrow morning. Do you think a 6 footer is big enough?
