The fight was lengthy, and my net was, the least to say; not helpful. Luckily, my buddy Shawn, aka Tazzman, on this site, was present, and gave an assist. He took pix and also had a net that at least fit half the fish. We had it subdued, or so I thought, and in the water, in between both boats. While reaching over it, for some reason I cannot recall, the fish lept from the water and grasped both sides of my left forearm. The pain was tempered by the endorphin release I'm sure, but we quickly noticed I was bleeding pretty good. After several pics with measuring boards near, I released her unharmed into the river. Freaking epic. Caught on cut bream, fished under a small float. Thanks Shawn!
