That was the first time out for both Dave and I in '08. Technically no skunk but hey to guys like Dave and I, not fishing is WORSE than being skunked . So glad we got out there!Skunk list! I havent even been fishing yet in 08, too busy having to be a nurse to the wife! (bet that would be tasty with lemon cake for dessert.!.)
See!! what'd I tell ya... ha hah ahaha... Knowin my luck though.. I'd of got the 200,000 volt version of the Conger Eel if I'd of touched it..Hey Dave - I looked it up and our "creature" is a Conger Eel. They actually eat them over in Europe - PASS. Them things can get as long as 9 feet. Man that thing destroyed my bucktail!
At the time I estimated it at 10 pounds but it may have been more based on how many reds I have caught with that same rod and never had it bent over as far as it was with the eel.What's funny is,, the folks wont be able to judge just how big that thing was by the pix... the pix dont really do it justice.. That thing was scary large! over 3 ft at least and about as big around as a normal man's calf!! (what ever that might be..)..
