    went out Thursday, took one of the guys that works for me, he has been wanting to go out on the river and see what it is like. the fish was hard to find but we did get a few. then i got a good bite, got it to the boat and here is one pretty fish 22 pound albino, it was as clean and white and pink as could be. cant get any work out of him to day lol, just wants to talk about that fish and how fun it was to fish the ole miss.

    Man that sure is a beautiful fish Russ. If Mrs okie or I catches an albino we are going to have a repilca made and put him on the wall.

    That is a really pretty fish Russ. A replica of that fish would be pretty neat to have on the wall. Congrats on the cool catch my friend!

    Get a hold of Manny here, he does taxidermy & replicas. Got no clue to his prices or if he can take it on right now.

    I caught about a ten pounder about 15 years ago. They really are pretty. Russ what kind of rod holders were on your boat? Driftmasters?

    nice fish grumper, even if they are not in the hawg range its a thrill when they come to the top and you see that snow white fish.
