Dude, what more can be said? Unbelievable! Might be the fish of the contest, right off the bat! I might be mistaken, but has anyone ever caught one of those for the contest EVER??? Love the pic of his gnarly head!!

Do not meddle in the affairs of BAGMAN, for thou art crunchy and good with Old Bay seasoning...

Not a monster but rad sure.  All day in the 100+F heat indexes was worth it. 5 runs, 2 hook ups, 1 on the bank

Sorry, my post got an error message and didn’t post the body for some reason. I jokingly said “tell me you caught it on a fixed line :)” Hope your trip south is good.

Other than the insane heat it was a great trip. Didn't bring my kyogi but I should have. Had lots of shots at Spotted Gar I could have gotten on it.  A gator gar on a salmon rod would be fun if you could get it hooked... The 200 yards runs to only get a maybe on the hookset though might nix that unless I could find some 2 footers

That's bad to the bone man. Can't wait to see what else you catch.

I bet the shirt helped.

Congrabs again on a splenidid lifer, and glad you survived the draining swelterheat.

Fishn sure is neat

Easily #1 contender for best fish of the competition already. Probably will remain. Also, I have never seen Tony this relieved - I wonder if he uttered any choice words when the previous one came off.....


Well done, man.
