50 Inch Mike, Front & Center!

Sweeeeeet Baby Jesus!  Another 50!  Congratulations Mike for making it front and center just like you said you were going to do.  This was such a sweet fish for Derek and I to watch as it came at Mike's bait.  We both saw it crash at the bait on the first strike and miss, and the funny part about it was that we said "Mike, you got one," and he did the ol "Huh, what, where, who me" thing that I love hearing every time.  Within about a half of a second, it came back for round two and just punished his bait.  After seeing a mid 50 incher in that spot last night, we had our hopes very very high while casting.  A few casts before this fish came up, a mid 40 incher followed to the boat, and then jaws latched on.  The rest is history, and the pics are once again being thrown up on the brag board.  Man I love those big beasts.  Myself and my guests are truly getting spoiled at times with the amount of huge fish that keep coming in the boat.  They say it isn't suppose to be that easy.  I love it, Love it, LOVE IT!  I am thinking that I am going to have to create a 50 inch club for some of these bruisers.  What a day, and way to capitalize on the chance of a lifetime Mike!  I enjoyed every second of it yet again!  Thanks to Derek and Mike for another great morning on the water.  Until Next Time Y'all, Keep on Livin the Dream!
