Fish of Lifetime
« on: Aug 21, 2012, 06:49 AM »
We have been doing alot of fishing this summer and it has been nothing short of steller.  W have boated alot of lakers and salmon up to 30+lbs but yesterday at 8:30 when the rigger fired and I grabbed the rod I had no idea I had a fish of a lifetime on the other end.  It literally was like I had the bottom hooked and after pulling all the gear and working the boat in and out of neutral for 15-20 minutes the beast surface and when we saw him parallel the boat at 30 yards and there was 24" between his dorsal and tail we knew we had a giant, as Capt'n Brian worked the throttle my good buddy Keith slid the net under the beast and pulled him over the deck and there was some serious man hugging and shouting going on as we knew we had a special fish on the deck. We rushed to get everything buttoned up and made a dash for the port and headed to Oak Orchard to Narby's and get the beast on the official derby scales and it did not dissapoint, she tipped the scales at 34lbs 6oz. putting me in the grand prize position in the Orleans County Derby (which it won $) and also on top of the LOC derby sitting in the $20K position, if it holds till Sept 3rd.  Still on cloud 9 catching the Boone and Crockett of lakers.

Tight lines gang!

The big guy

Man oh man those are some very impressive sized fish, but that big lake trout is a real lunker. :thumbup_smilie:
Congrats on your new PB and I hope it's the top fish in your tournament.
