Bruce threw a fishing pole in the water Sunday morning in the marina off of the houseboat at about 6:30 am because he was bored and I was still sleeping. Well, about 1:30 or thereabouts him and Louie were standing on the dock talking and the pole was taking off and the bobber was gone. He got to it in time and this was on it. It was quite a fight and we had to get a net in order to get it in. It was 27 inches long and I think like 14 pounds. Of course I had to take a picture of him with his first big fish of the year. But we did release it back and it didn't take long at all for it to get some air into its gills and take off. Plan to do a lot more fishing this year at the river!
