My Big Fish

I thought I would share this catch with you. I caught this on July 7th 2008, casting of the pier, at Big Bay Park. I was using 10Lb Trilene XL, a ball bearing swivel, a Shimano Sedona 4000RB reel on a 9 ft Cabelas blue label fishing rod. This is the link to the lure I caught it on:

If you want to know the truth very few fish have been caught at this location since 1985. Some blame it on the shallow water being warm. I blame it on pollution. Anyway I caught this in the early morning before a storm of strong winds and rain blew through, and almost took me with it. The storm came from the west. This one was a rarity you can get some clue as to how big it was by the brown paper grocery bags. We ate it. :)
