That is awesome! It's a wonder he didn't break through your leader or something! Good catch!

Yeah that is pretty amazing! I think it would be pretty cool to go fishing for them sometime. But my luck I wouldn't catch a single one since I never catch what I intend to. haha.

I will have to do some searching on that! It looks pretty fun to me! lol I've heard they get pretty huge down in Texas. I saw a show on Animal Planet called River Monsters. If you happen to flip to the channel when its on you should watch it. This guy is crazy! He gets some crazy huge fish on there.
