    I have no clue, but the men to ask would be pop pop, Patmansc, bruce edmunds, steve_b, preacherfisherman, or Sunbird. They'd be able to tell you, probably....

    I fished the boat dock at Monty during The week of July 4th. Saw a 35 and a 45 pounder released at the boat dock my first night fishing. I caught a 20 pounder also that night off of the boat dock. The one pictured in POP POP's avatar looks to be 60 or 70 Lbs. It was caught on Monticello.:big_smile:

    Chrisblue where are u? He would know this info probably.:wink:

    I think "The Grand Wizard Ole' Mister Catsmacker", Pop Pop could tell ya a tale or two? Look at that avatar!! :eek:oooh::eek:oooh:

    I grew up several miles from Monty and have heard it all! I did have a friend catch a 75lber. last summer in my boat. :big_smile: I also have a friend that caught and released a 112lbs. Blue. He kept it in a bathtub for three days as the "main attraction" for a weekend country, bonfire, shine drinkin' party he had. I have a pic of that fish but can't find it anywhere!! I have looked and looked! It is about to drive me crazy!:confused2::angry:
    If I remember correctly it is dated July '97.

    That would be one BIG fish now!!:eek:oooh::eek:oooh:

    You know what, I am sure The Grand Wizard Master of Catsmackin is in hot pursuit of that fish as I type!! :wink:

    Actually it was one of several they had around the farm that were used to catch run-off water from the roof and the animals, and sometimes his ugly :eek:oooh: sister, drank out of.
