The Inspector had to go MORE than 8 seconds!
« on: May 28, 2012, 09:55:04 PM »
 :eek: What a wild morning! Caught a HUGE snappin' turtle today, but I'll save those pictures for later.

Here's the story to beat all for our entire trip!

I felt a little tug right when I grabbed the line, so I told The Inspector to jump in and get ready for a good one.

Flatheads tug, channel cats tick-a-tick.  :2up:

This was a little tug. I was thinking......ummmm.....20ish?! Maybe only 12 or 15?!

So, he got on the line, and slowing started working his way down. He said, "I think its getting big."

I asked HOW BIG? (laughing)  :stuart:

And then, the line ZIPPED through his hands,mine and our two buddies keeping the boat steady, like I had never seen before!  :eek:   :rockon:

We all snatched ahold tighter, The Inspector got low in the boat, and worked his way back on the line to me while holding on. :eek: He turned to me with his eyes WIDE :eek: and said, "Hold on to me tight! Its REALLY BIG!"  :eek:  :bigup:  :punk:

About that time, the water ERUPTED!  :eek:

Splish splash, we were ALL taking a bath!  :eek:   :hysterical:

I told him to hold on and don't let go. I did like I was doing yesterday, held the line in my left hand, and The Inspector in my right!  :rofl:

The Inspector felt like a wiggling fish himself, he was fighting that big ol' dude hard!  :eek:   :rofl:

We got to the drop, and brought the monster to the top to where we could get a look!  :eek: It was LOOONG!

After three more dives, our buddy had him in the net, and The Inspector had his prize!

His 54 pound personal trotline record had fell in 24 hours! ON THE EXACT SAME HOOK as the day before! This monster weighed in at 59 pounds, taking over a #3 spot for me on my list!

Once the fish was completely in the boat and off the line, The Inspector turned to me and said, "I'm riding this one!"  :rofl:   :gitrdone:

So, who am I to disappoint the kid?!  :punk:   :rockon:

What a crazy dang week! We worked REALLY HARD to come up with the bait we used, but it all paid off in the end!

This was the conclusion of our trotlining for the year. WHAT AN AWESOME TIME!

(and for this wondering, Long Branch did not get to play much this year, because he decided to haul off and get a job for the summer.  :up1: I mean! Come on! A JOB?!  :up1: )

 :hysterical:  I do plan on using it as his 'kid picture' at his highschool graduation at this point.   :rockon:
