    Big thanks to Chrisblue. I could not have asked for a better fishing trip. We started the day off with a 39.5 lb blue. We caught four other 1 15lber, 3 in around the 5lb range. The photo in my avatar is a picture of the 39lber. We released all the fish, but sadly the big had troubles. They tried burping the fish and running water through the gills, but could not get him to dive. After trying for an hour they decided to just keep the fish so he wouldn't go to waste. Included are some more photo's of the big fish, and the 15lber. I must say this was the best fishing trip ever. Once again thanks to CHRISBLUE!!! And for the knowledge on the mainals.lol:smile2:

    Just would like to add a personal thanks to chrisblue. His professionalism as a guide is commendable. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to go to catch the big ones. He taught me a lot and I will never forget it. His willingness to help me learn goes far beyond a guide service. Hopefully now we can start posting more pics of big fish. Two thumbs up and 5 stars. As for trade secrets, don't even ask. They are patented! By the way Chris, Thanks for the mainals. :big_smile:Thank You Chris!!!!!:big_smile::big_smile::big_smile:

    Way to go Catlady. Once you catch a big cat like that you are hooked on fishing. Great job Chris! Putting someone on a nice one like that is satisfying!! I bet it was a day to remember for your party.

    Great job Chris!! :wink:

    Sounds like everyone had a good time. Sorry to hear the big did not make it, but sometimes that happens. You give it an hour worth of effort and that is about all you can do.

    So, about the tale of the beer bottle....... :wink:
