    Much better pic of the tag. On Kevin's photo that I cropped, we didn't know it had a tag at this point. Hence the algae covering it. Now I know what the numbers look like. :-)

    Thanks for the info Kevin. These fish are indeed special. I know of a couple of these fish caught over 20 pounds. The biggest 24 pounds. They will get bigger than this.

    amazing trip guys. It sure look cold but catching monster like those will get your heart pumping quick.

    That fishing lure that caught the rock is cool looking.

    keep up the good work...


    So Doug is a one man party machine...need to hook up and do some fishing/partying

    thanks again for sharing the stories and pictures. Sure makes Monday Morning a little better.

    Yep, why? Was it yours? LOL (I know it's not). It had the triangle holes from a can opener all around the top. Someone must of used it for chum. Bait is illegal at that lake and just the fact that they littered makes them a looser. IMO
