That is awesome! A 30 minute fight? Isn't that pretty quick for a fish that size? That is some great eating.

Catching a fish of a lifetime with with your son :thumbsup:

George did the fish take bars? bait, lure??? (or maybe with all the excitement in the read I missed that :rotfl: )

The lady Diane certainly has caught some fish :thumbsup:

Congratulations Capt.G We are all envious and proud of that accomplishment. My motto is the captain has more fun. Hunting the fish down and getting them to bite, let the young arms do the pulling. You must be so proud of your son pulling on the beast in 30 minutes, keeping the fish in prime condition. Question do you spike and core your fish. How do you do it??? The size of that fish has me babbling.

Kudos to you and your son :highfive:
