Fish took me 25+ minutes to get in. Biggest fish on my life, best fight, dont know if i will ever catch another one.

 

Fishing is like a box of chocolates you never know what your gonna catch,

Great fish Corey. I have never caught one. Were you targeting them or were you fishing for something else? Did the fish jump at all?

We were actually targeting suckers, as thats all we really knew was there at this time of year. I caught it with a 7' MH, 12# mono, and a now broken spinning reel, with a jig and a worm. Yes the fish jumped a few times but the first jump was definitely the best as she cleared the water.

Very nice! Quite the shock if you were expecting suckers....and along comes that beast!

 

Like others have said, that really is the fish of a lifetime. Not everyone can say they have caught one! I certainly could not.
