    Madcatter called me while I was at BPS getting another reel and told me that Lynn's 88# Blue was a new US Cats all time big fish record. I can't wait to see these pics. I guess this means we've got a new Ohio River OGF record. Way to go Doc and Lynn!!!

    I'm not sure who the proudest is, as we share the joy with this big fish this is a great cat that Lynn caught during a US Cats tournament, details to follow later.........Doc

    Here's Larry holding it up prior to release back into the river the Blue was 55 inches in length, as soon as we shoved him in the water he bolted off......Doc

    I did add to the team effort with this 31 pounder that came off of the same spot the 88# came off of only 15 min. after netting her big fish.

    This fish was in the net in one scoop, I'm very good at it Lynn has given me lots of practice over the years:D

    In the livewell and getting this bigboy prepared. All this time I'm going freakin nuts, I might be 52 years old but I was like a 18 year old kid with a new toy, Lynn on the other hand was cool and calm.

    [​IMG]

    Live well is on and everything is a go, the livewell I built is 60 gallons and has a 750Gallon per hour pump I also added airstones in the bottom and have an air pump with dual outlets, so this guy was never in any peril while in the livewell, at the weigh-in we left him in the livewell till it was time to take him to the scales, when I went to get him out he went nuts on me, but I wrestled him out and handed him to Donnie and Larry and they took him to the scales, everything went crazy after that our only concern was to get him weighed, pictures taken and get him back into the water as quickly as possible, thanks Donnie and Larry once again you guys were there to handle a trophy fish and help return a monster to his home, Also thanks to BillGfish as he had contacted me early in the week about the Shad were in at Grand Lake, Lynn caught her fish on the head section of a 16" Shad.

    Here I am getting ready to release the big girl into the river.

    Another shot just prior to release. We were doing high fives all around when this fish bolted for the river, it was cool indeed.

    Cool, but there's only little red X's where the pictures ought to be. ;)
    Hard to believe you didn't take 1st place with that one in the boat. Must be a great spot for big fish.

    congrats,lynn.i can't see the pics either,but 88 pounds is one great fish.
    i'm always trying to get my wife to fish with me,but you're a great example of why i'm sometimes glad she doesn't ;)
    i'd probably cry if she whooped up on me like you do doc :eek:
    but then again,i'd be as proud as i know he is of you,and thrilled to see her make a catch like that :) :cool:


    ps.....doc,can you post the pics in a different format so we all can see them?

    Congrats to Lynn on such a monster Blue!!!!

    It looks like this year is going to even get better for you two with both of you getting your personal best cats already in "05". I guessing this is Lynn's PB Blue Cat.

    Congrats Again
