    I not familiar with that boat. I amazed at how stable it is. That fish did not seem to rock it at all.
    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

    That was an incredible feat! Thanks for sharing!

    It's a stable boat but not that stable. The OP was doing an incredible job counterbalancing, and was probably running the risk of a fantastic roll if the line broke which thankfully it didn't.

    What a beast, good idea pulling him out to deep water. Awesome job.

    Great job of peddling out to deeper water and getting that fish up off the bottom. I see in the video, that you frequently had you hand on the spool to keep the pressure on. I'm guessing you used 80lb braid to get that fish up. Congratulatons on an amazing catch.

    50 pound suffix 832. Test out somewhere around 70 pounds john. And ya I had to put some pressure on him. He was a beast
