    My biggest is a 62.5 lb blue caught last summer on cut skipjack. The last two weeks of June and the first two weeks of July in 2005, I caught the 62.5 lb blue, a 35lb blue, a 29lb blue and four between 20 and 25lbs. The morning I caught the big blue, I also caught a 10 and 11 lb blue and one channel that went 8lbs. That's just over 91lbs of fish in one morning. I was home by 11:30am.

    An 8lb Blue and a Flat that was around 10, the funny thing is that these fish were not supposed to be in these lakes!
