fifty four pound blue! that's a big fish. The fish in my pictures went thirty six and thirty two. Honestly those are the biggest fish I've ever caught. We were blessed to have had a bunch of all the right things come together. Stained water, rising river and a new moon with some warmer weather mixed in. Eleven fish in two days weighing in at one ninety . I feel very fortunate and I hope y'all are getting into some fish as well.

Hmmm never ran circle hooks on my lines. Might have to give it a shot! We run deep water lines as well that are between 15-20 ft deep for the big boys.
