Talking Caught an absolute monster!

Reeled in this bad boy on Monday. Stripped me to the end of my backing and nearly pulled me in. Think I may send in the pic for a mount. I didnt get measurements, but would guess 32 1/2 -33" would be about right:

I wouldn't invite the relatives for a fish fry. Have caught a few of those myself.

I sure hope you didn't break the fly rod trying to haul that bad boy in, give your shoulder a few days rest and it should be fine.

It was tough. Luckily I had some heavy duty saltwater gear, and had chained myself to a large tree.

What kind of muscle growth hormones are you taking to hold that whale with one hand?

On my first catch this year I fooled a Warpaint Shiner. When I set the hook I bet that little fish thought he had been launched by a missile as he flew through the air and landed twenty feet behind me! I guess I set the hook with a little too much enthusiasm.
