      Damn and the location is wrong on this. It was caught at Lafayette.
    2. kylemeniketti 0
      Thanks for the feedback! I wish I had a scale but I was hoping he was 20ish, but 15-20 isn't a bad guess at all.
    3. King_Fisher 0
      I'm with @CrappieFisherman12 probably around 15ish.
    4. Jackson Roberts 0
