    Great looking fish Capone! Not trying to take anything away from you, but you should try to hold the fish a little more horizontal. Holding them vertical like that puts a lot of stress on their spine and internal organs.

    Regardless, you're now hooked for sure! What did you catch her on? I've been itching to get out and troll at night.
     
  5. your right about the way i was holding her.....i wasnt thinking at the time....i released her in good shape though.....i was useing a rapala x-rap magnum 15

  11. Congrats ! A 48" is a great fish for Alum, even better if it's your first trolling fish ! Sounds like it has been a great year there this year, I usually fish it alot but have not made out much this year. Hope to hit the fall bite a little harder.
