Damn man, what a season. I'm gonna get it done this summer/fall. I have still not landed a biggun, but I am now, more than ever, bound and determined to start hunting 'em.

Good season, good pics.

Very nice Tom. I'm taking a little fishing break but when I come back from Europe let's hit some fall fish together. I can't wait to catch some big fall nooks.

Very Nice Tom:clap::dance:. The part of the video everyone doesn't see is right when I shut the camera off it ran Tom and I 100 yrds or so up the creek for another 5-10 minute fight. That Video he couldn't post cause i was cussing and falling all over the creek like a drunken sailor.:lol: What an epic day:shock:. I landed a 16 and 18lber on Pop A Top Yarn and well Tom landed the big boy. The gear In the fishes mouth I mentioned in the video was mine and CJ's. We both lost that big boy in the days prior. I am just glad I was there when Tom hauled that Buck in. It was comical to watch Tom haul that fish out of the 2 mile hike.:lol:

The Wilson hates me. It's great to see you really hit your stride as a fisherman Tom. Keep it up. I'm sure the old man would be proud.
