The blues obliterated my tackle twice on Friday before I switched to a heavy leader to the hook. Crying smiley After that it was game on.

One reason they call them big head blues LOL it just look like it but they still give a nice fight and in my opinion taste better then the little fat one you get in the summer. Thumbs up

Rick, you are living the life this week. I was at Frisco Saturday and could only watch. My allergies kicked in so bad it shut down my fishing plans.

Yes, that would do it. We usually fillet them without scaling, and remove the skin right then and there.
Anyway, it's a purty one
