Heres a couple pics of the fish.  It was gut hooked and didn't make it.  I released it only to have it sink to the bottom and swim upside down back into shore a couple times.  To I figured what the hell, might as well keep the thing cause it aint gonna make it.  I called Josh that night and in a couple days it was in his hands frozen solid.  It was 5lbs and 40 inches long.
