Pig of the week



Jeff Roop and his pet pot belly pig

Actually, I take back the reference... the fish is far too beautiful to call a pig. It's a HAWG.

That's me standing behind Roop and I saw that fish in person. The biggest of the Day!

RE:Pig of the week

Thanks guys.

Thanks to Gregg & Mike for showing me the swing, I passed it on after I landed the fish pictured above. (and lost one that was at least 3X as big)

Thanks to Juro for the deep sand eel, I caught most of mine on my night version which has black ultra hair as the top layer.

Two things I keep thinking about;
1. How fat, healthy & STRONG the fish are out there. You should have seen the workout a 30 incher gave John's 12 weight.
2. How good it felt to let that one go. Just another confirmation for me that we need to go to a 36" limit!!

Roopster,

That's a beauty. I agree 36" minimum.
