bigrivereyes%20009.jpgI'm Not sure what to say about this other than AWESOME!  So I wasn't able to join the boys on their trip today, but that doesn't mean that I can't share their success with all of you.  By now you know these characters that I get to hang out with pretty well, so I will share their spectacular catches with you to drool over.  Heavens knows I am drooling as I write this.  So the first picture is just incredible.  The fish was exactly 30 inches long, and had an incredible girth of 20 inches.  They just don't get a lot bigger than that.  They had a quite a few over the 5 pound mark, but this birg girl took the cake.  bigrivereyes%20005.jpgI guess it was funny, cuz they had 12 nice eyes in the boat before Bails caught one, but he made up for that in a hurry with this beast.  Way to go buddy!  It's definitely go time for the biggens, and it just shows how quickly these fish can turn on.  Just a couple of days ago Dusty and I fished the same area with only a few small fish.  I guess the time has come, so I'm assuming that you'll be seeing more pictures posted up here very soon. 

Not only did they catch some spectacular eye's, but they also landed a couple of really weird fish that you can only catch out of the river.  The first picture is of a carp, but it has some really messed up colors.  I will do some research on it to figure out exactly what they caught.  bigrivereyes%20014.jpgbigrivereyes%20016.jpgThe second picture looks like a fish that shouldn't even be swimming in fresh water.  Once again, more research to narrow that name down.  Awesome trip boys!  Thanks for sharing with us all.  Now that's how you live the dream!bigrivereyes%20019.jpgbigrivereyes%20015.jpg
