Today, Blake (bassmaster13) and I decided to hit SC today. We arrived at five in the morning with nothing until about 130. we have been moving from place to place, with small bites here and there. Generally, it was a slow day. Suddenly, by rod dropped into the water and started swimming away. I ran into the water and grabbed my 4lb test browning rod. I fought the beast for about 25 minutes, finally i was able to net it. at first i thought it to be a 3lber (still a big fish for me), so i wanted to kind of haul him in. Then he ran. The fight lasted for more time till i finally landed him, yelling "holy s@$! so the entire lake can hear me (sorry all:stomper:). Anyways, slow day, big fish, excellent day.9234

Thanks guys.
JV, we used two scales, one at 8.9lbs, the other at 9.2, just averaged it to nine. Picture doesn't do great justice, measured @ 27 inches.

Nothing like a four pound test to make one think twice about tightening the drag a bit more to drag it to shore. Congratulations!

super nice!!!! I bet it was a lot of fun reeling her in with that 4lb test line. I remember back when I was a regular trout fisherman using 4lb test. I lost a lot of trout, not from the line breaking but from the undone hook. Do you use treble hook or single hook? I may get back into lake fishing this year.

FM, no treble hooks for LMB hookset too important. One sharp point into jaw.

My apologies to FM - on my cel phone this fish looked so fat that I thought it was a Bass! And with all the hype lately about the 18 pounder, I just associated that this was a LMB. Thought it was strange you were asking if Trebles work for LMB. Big Game wasn't payin' attention to what board he was on! sorry about that.....yes, I do know the difference between LMB and RT Fishbucket....I can just feel it coming.....
:duh:
