    What is the heaviest fish you ever shot? This one was 70lbs even on the local COOP's certified scale.

    That's huge! I have no trouble believing it's 70#. :)

    I haven't shot anything very big at all. Maybe a 10 pounder.

    I caught a grass carp once, it was probably 20-25 pounds, maybe more. But that one is a GIANT!! Congrats!

    Didn't shoot it but I snagged this 27 pound buffalo in the tail a few years ago. It was quite the battle. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I don't know if I still have the picture, but I shot a 56 lb. grass carp probably 15 years ago.

    Shot quite a few big ones but this is one of the bigger ones we snagged. Switched to snagging cuz it was more fun after we had our fill of bait. [​IMG]

    Not a chance. Still my favorite fishing shirt but took a few washes to rid the slime. Had it by the gill plate and it ripped and in the process of trying to get ahold of it I ended up holding it like a guitar and my buddy thought that was a hilarious pose so we went with it. Need to get back over there again and stock up the freezer soon
