    ya know it's good one when it looks big with you as a backdrop:D
    landing two like those in a short trip is an extra bonus.
     
  4. NICE!! :B well, you have my PB beat. maybe i should fish with Jack more often:confused: i wanted to get out today but think my entire weekend is going to be spent doing "house work". BTW, bait used? deep? shallow?

    The morning started off pretty well w/ me landing a 31.2# Flathead waiting for Flathunter to arrive, but an hour or so later it got a littler better when I was finally able to break the 40# mark. Both came from one of our "Old" spots that we rarely hit due to access issues, looks like we're going to have to hit it more often!

    I feel like a big weight has been lifted off me, with breaking the 40# mark. I must say that the fight was amazing as I had to be careful because I was only using 20# line.

    I had a great time fishign w/ Jack today. Work and home life has been so stressful over the last few months. Today made up for some of that!
     
  12. Way to go Bryan!! Congrats!! That fish looks huge. Hopefully you will break your pb again soon!
