Nice fish
Might do so research on how to properly hold big fish that are going back into the pond.

Congrats Mark what were her dimensions?

Thanks! I forgot my tackle box on the porch and also my measure stick and scale were on the lid. I had a variety bag of plastic worms and toads in my golf cart shed and also a new bag of Berkeley Pit Boss plastic creatures. I grabbed those and had a morning of action non stop. I am leaving in 30 min with my box and tools for stats of fish.
Top water time!

Actually in both Marks pics he is holding those fish just fine IMO. You can hold fish straight up and down even larger ones and they will be fine. Now in his other pic if he was NOT supporting his tail then that would be a big no, no. I see no problems with either hold.


Nice fricken fish by the way Mark!! Congrats!!!
The only difference between a rut and a Grave is the depth. So get up get out of that rut and get moving!! Time to work!!

This one picture looks like it was a self-y. Hard to do with a fish that size ever.
