Only fish of the day


ERIC DENNIS

north platte Nebraska

I went fishing on foot because my boat was at the mechanic. I was out for about 4 hours with no luck. But that all changed when this guy hit. I fought him for about 20 mins. and when he got to she shore i could see that he was bleeding profusely from the gills. I catch alot of these big boys and i always release them. It broke my heart to have to keep him.
