I have to ask you TreeDoc...
Did you know what type of fish you had caught or did you have to use some reference materials for species identification after you rushed back home?
I'm chuckling because I have caught fish in the past that when someone had asked me about ("What is that?" Well...I don't know...yet.")
Sounds like a nice fight all the same. I swear that the ugliest fish seem to put up the best fights!
