Nice Matty! That fish would have been an easy 35+ if had been eating like he should of.

Cmmon' Matt, what's up with the "thumbnail photos"?

We are finally treated to a quality photo instead of that self portrait crap, and now this. Since it's a pig, how about putting up the real photo, so Moyer can see that she had no more room in that 42" frame.

Josh- I know he would be lying because he came over and I felleted it for him. There was nothing in it's belly! It was a very long fish with a big head, defintiely reminded me of something.

Now that's a nice photo.......

Moyer, who says talking dirty and fishing don't go together?



I would have to agree with Stevooo, that's one of the best kayak photos ever (shiny new kayak, matching dry top, shiny reels, glassy conditions, fixed hair, and a trophy in your lap). It captures the moment of a newly happily married man (that lost his wedding ring the day before), but went out to pick up his prize. I saw that fish, and it was one of the prettiest Yellowtail I ever saw (better display of colors in the "deck photo" up top), but the fact that Matt had styled his hair that morning made it all the better .

Well Matt, it looks like marriage is agreeing with you. You look pretty spiffy in that picture. Now you're raising the bar for the rest of us grizzled veterans. Great catch and I like your new wheels.

2nd yt sub for wcw 2008-2009

Fish is an exact, and I do mean exact cookie cutter of my other fish!!! Frighteningly similar except for the fight, this dude took out almost the same amount of line but at the end of the fight decided to just hover beneath the kayak for the last 5 minutes absolutely wouldn't budge. Caught him on a flylined mack with 25lb flouro and a 1/0 gorilla hook!! Thanks for the on the water photo Michael and thanks to the fellas at OEX for getting me the certified weight of 31.9lbs the same exact weight as my other fish!!!!







Now I just gotta catch those damn other species!!!!
