    Finally after plenty of skunks and slow days recently, this happened...

    We went out for a little bit this morning to break in the new Scorpion DC my friend brought back from Japan and my jerkbait got “snagged on a rock.”

    It’s official, my life is complete, Carter can die a happy man!

    No clue, didn’t have a scale and I suck at guessing weights hahaha. Hopefully some day I can top it.

    Nothing tops the feeling of catching big fish , weights are secondary.

    Judging from the distance between you hands and the hand/mouth ratio my estimate would be 8 or 9 pounds. Gorgeous fish! Worthy of a replica mount if you got any measurements. Arizona fish?

    Yup AZ fish and yup I admit I was holding it out hahaha, wouldn’t be a real fish pic if I didn’t lol. Still a beautiful fish regardless. Unfortunately I regretfully didn’t get any measurements because I was too caught up in the moment and wanted to get it back in the water ASAP. I guessed 9 or 10 and my friend said 12 so idk. The thing was shaped like a bowling ball!
