I know I know, you simply can't believe I hauled this monster in all by myself! Truth is I had to have Kev help. He somehow had a gaf on his toon and tried to use that to land this beast. But this fish was so large and so mighty, the gaf merely bounced off. I grabbed some rope from my toon pocket and we managed to rope it around his gils and then drag him into shore. He almost pulled my toon under! On shore I had to pry its mighty jaws open while Kev used his long arms to get the lure out. I mean he reached in and his shoulders disappeared. Yeah, shoulda took it in to claim the state record, but you know I'm pretty much a CnR guy. Was awesome to watch him swim off.
Yep that's a trusty ole Mann's baby 1-minus you see
