    Now that's a fish! ESPECIALLY on a bass rod! That had to been a blast!

    What exact rod and reel did you have?

    Did he bite on the retrieve or on the fall?

    Thanks for the report, and CONGRATS!!

    Got it on the grind about 200 feet down. It is the rod that see behind me. California special and a Okuma Reel.

    It's a GREAT photo too, I think I might have that printed, and framed. Nice fish for one of the new, lightweight mounts they do. Would that look cool on your wall or what?
