    Dude, If someone tied up the boat with a fish like that when I was on it, I wouldn't care at all. It'd be fun watching him battle that thing.....

    Also it took me about 45 min. fish were still boiling around the boat for most of the fight and people were hooking fish for over an hour after we stopped on that spot.

    Yeah so it was last year. But just look at the rod and reel he caught it with!!!! That deserves applause. It's not like the Tanner bank guys using 80-100 lb leader on spectra.
    Way to go!.
    Hope you caught some this year too.

    Wow. Guilty as charged. I didn't read the whole thread since it was over a year old. The pic he posted certainly made it look like that was the gear he used.
    Correction. Not landed with the trout gear!
    Still a great fish and great job of bringing in the fish.
