Started the morning East of the creek fishing kings. Did some kings, a brown and lakers before starting the laker troll. Headed down to our weigh points from the other day and started lighting up the lakers. After 20 minutes we had boated 10 and the Starboard rigger fires and immediatly starts taking drag. Kurt yells to me, I can't get it off the bottom. I started going in and out of neutral and we started to gain line. When it surfaced, I knew it was a slob. After the net was slid under it, there was a lot of hooting and hollering. I put it on the boat scale and it was bouncing between 34 and 35lbs. We rushed to weigh it in for the LOC and the Orleans. It hit the scales at 34lbs 6oz. A new boat record by 9lbs 9oz. Great job Kurt on the rod and Keith on the net.

Our own Kobe Catcher is not too bad at snagging the silver fish, either ;)

His king was leading the Orleans derby for awhile, and I think it will end up 3rd or so, and he was the top amateur boat in the Sandy Creek Shootout behind Yankee, Rebel, and Trout-N-About. Not bad company to be keeping...

If he ever moves up from his beloved 22' (heretofore known as "Chicken Coop"), watch out! :D:D:D
