This fish was caught on the Hillsborough River at the state park campgrounds. I caught her on a live shiner and held on for dear mercy. I about had a heart attack when I saw how big she was and thought to myself I better not mess this one up! The first picture taken, I looked like a total spaz! I had the biggest, cheesiest smile! Understandable I guess, but still cheesy. I don't think she was on bed, but couldn't be for sure. I was fishing from the shore and I had never been there before. The spot just looked right and I thought what the hell. She was caught right under a downed tree at a bend in the river and fought like a champ. It was a great feeling putting her back in the water for someone else to tell another story about her. I wish I would have measured the girth, but I was too excited and forgot. Thank you for replying to my post, I appreciate it.
