To this day I'm uncertain how long it took to obtain that fish to the side of the boat but it was by much the battle of a life time for me. Both perceptions I have from the fight is how commonly he came out of the water and just how much my forearms were burning.
We were approaching a truly productive stretch on river left however since we just weren't in a drift boat we were going to have to simply do a drive by. Fishing as much as this issue had actually been alright, mainly half pounders as well as seaside cuts, so I was really wanting to get involved in a great grownup. Few productive spots left and we were turning up on the takeout.
