As Neil Young put it so well.... "Ive seen the needle and the damage done" a mans gotta chase something, its in his nature, and once your married it pretty much leaves money or fish.. and money is a horrible thing to chase.. its the only thing more slipppery than a fish..

Good times Brad! Thanks for taking me out. Yep, the addiction is setting in...I've been scouring craigslist for bigger boats already.

Also, couldn't have asked for a better day. Forecast called for rain...but as you can see there was none. Blue sky and scattered clouds, not a single raindrop fell the entire time we were out there.

I'm looking at that fish trying to figure out what bait you were using. It looks like a big brown soft plastic worm but I know better.

Nice fish and a great way to introduce someone to fishing for big fish.

Kinda looks like those pig skins they put on bass jigs. Just another one of HHM's secret tricks using bass bait for sturg.

Cut into strips, dip in light tempura batter along with whole mushrooms and chunks of broccoli, throw into wok with hot oil, eat, die of pleasurable taste.

That sounds more like what I was seeing. Good job. I've got some old nook eggs I'm thinking of wrapping in a spawn sack and trying that for bait. Better that than using them as fertilizer.
