That's a cracker John, I worked with a lot of Southern boys on the pipelines and when I told them I was an ex fisherman one lad from Mississippi, Jerry Fulcher used to say to me, "You ain't never been fishin' till you catch a mississippi catfish with a half pound line". I see what he means now. LOL

Yes its a beauty alright,as they say in the business its a keeper. The paper said he will have it mounted,he also kept the exact place he hooked it a secret.he was lucky because he was about to bring his boat in because of the storm when he felt a tug on his line and the reel started screaming.
