Geez, did everybody catch these things in the root? In all seriousness though, just a tough fish. Nice one.
It sure seemed like it lol some people caught multiples. I caught this last minute as we were packing up. It didn't seem that rare of a catch by the end of that weekend but definitely a cool catch.
They are a pain when trying for them. The monkey is off your back so you can chase them again and not have the pressure. I was happy to see so many people catch their lifers that weekend. It was great fishing.
It is all perspective!

Yes, the pressure is off thank god lol I hope to sight fish one someday. Blind fishing for them was cool because I really wasn't expecting to get one, but with everything else going after the bait it was pretty stressful. I'm just so glad I went, the amount of fish was insane, the area is beautiful, and I didn't hear one person say "quit fishing, you're an addict" lol it was very nice meeting more people who share the same passion.
