of a meal! Me, Mellon, and Fishinfreak all hit the Big O on the black pearl sunday jan 7th. Water temp was a cool 39-40 degrees, skies were overcast with some drizzle. The air temp......suppost to be like 55 was a chilly mid 40s with a cold wind chill. Started off the day with all time catfisher Mellon, losing one. But after a lil search and destroy we had our first fish in by Mellon, then I caught one, and then....the one and only capt of the pearl fishinfreak pulls in a monster.....hellbender that is. This thing was like godzilla at 12inches long and mean looking! Next spot, fishin freak was waiting on his first and then bam... fish on....Randy was quick to set the hook but was unable to reel this fish in....not because it was huge but because he was on the phone jabbin. So I reeled it in. LOL (9lb channel) Overall nice day on the water, ended up with a couple 9s couple 6s and a dink 3lber! (that was me of course). And last but not least a slimy godzilla like hellbender! Best catch of the day goes too............drumroll........Wild mikes barbq chicken wings and curly fries with cheese!
