it was supposedly caught on 8lb test while targeting walleye! now you know, you don't need heavy line to bring up big big fish. it's all in the drag setting.

amen on the drag.....setting! I brought up a monster almost as big as that (in my dreams!) on 8lb mono this past spring. Ok, it was pretty big nonetheless!!! But man, that thing is incredible! It could eat just about anything i've ever caught!!! The look on that guys face says it all....a cross between exhausted-thrilled-and scared witless!

since we're on the topic of monster fish...here's one that i found awhile back but never posted. fish like that will make you crap your pants if you saw this thing on the end of your line. Over 8 feet long and weighing 300 lbs.

makes you think twice about swimming around in freshwater lakes don't it??!!! in case your wondering...that fish is an alligator gar.

That's not a shark. It's a huge rapala that the guy in the kayak is trolling with!
