  8. ChrisI’ll show you catching a monster hybrid in my face! Here is My new Pb at 10.25# and 26.75”. This thing was a beast taking about ten minutes to land. The club ...more record isn’t much bigger so it is safe to say this will be the biggest hybrid I ever catch. The adrenaline is still going.

      Thanks guys! Mike check out the knee deep club.
    13. Thats a monster. Congrats. Caught a pair of 28 inchers over the summer on back to back days but both were a good pound or two lighter than that. Brought one to Buckshot ...more and should get it back soon.

      Man I love those fish they fight like a monster!
    15. no chance. squatch has freakishly small hands, causing an optic illusion of the fish looking bigger than it actually is
    16. Looks at least 28+ inches
    17. I have an official dispute of the ruler picture on this fish pending. I will wait for the official results!
