Slinger,

How are you going to mount that to the back of the boat? I have no doubt it's enough get up and go, but I don't think the mounting holes are the same?

Sean,

All I can say is sweet man. Nice work.

Steve called me last night from his car about the catch....he was in rare form He claimed the ride home in the boat was a bit wet and his boots were full of water...I asked if they still had water in them and he said "Yes"...I told him to pull over to the side of the road and empty them out...He said "Good Idea"

Well, I suppose that's one way to keep your mind off of boat troubles.

I just typed out a long reply and it went away into hyperspace, I`m not gonna type all that again! So here`s the short version. Incredible fish, I`ve never seen anything so strong, thought it was gonna kill me! Weight chart puts it at 49.68 lbs. Sean got one 2 in bigger, on a fly and beat it in half the time, damn showoff! 32 mi. ride back in 4-5`s with 25+ wind was no fun! Left at 2, got back home at 9, 19 hours, I`m gettin too old for this stuff. Wanna go again tomorrow? The pics of Sean are on my camera and the pics of me are on his, seems backwards.
