too bad paul missed out on his first fish over 5 lbs this year...

 

the fished jumped and the jig went flying .... right smack into his face to bring him back to reality.

 

it was more like a 6 + lbs small mouth to me but we will never know.

 

all i know is that we caught 6 or 7 4 lbs plus that day and when he missed that freak of nature we were both traumatized for life.

 

BIG fish leave deep scars be aware! :o:o:o:o:o

 

my 4.15lbs 7/8 Oz had no show compaired to this fish! :worthy::worthy:

 

But now we know there in there...........................

 

6 lbs smallie hunt ACTIVATED!!!

Wow ..

You mean to say the 1000 I took off the other day wasn't enough.... :dunno::dunno:

 

Paul, Photobucket has a monthly limit of Megabytes for uploading.... you've just exceeded that amount. Your pics are still there.... they're just disabled until you upgrade to PRO (which comes with a monthly fee) or wait til the end of the month so that the total goes back to zero ;)

 

Deleting old photos will not help in this case.... you either upgrade or wait :P
