Hooked up to about an 8 lber a few years back and as soon as I hooked up I yelled for the net. Thought I had a world record also, haha. Great fighters.

I look forward to catching a bowfin, never have any luck. Stupid green trash fish get in the way.... lol The "blue" fish was probably a drum. 2 species I've been targetting and can't seem to catch this year. Guess I should try fishing for bass. Nice surprise even if it didn't weigh.
Common: 30lbs
Mirror: 14lbs
Buffalo: 56lbs
