It was a day catch, right around noon. I've caught all my decent cats between 10am and 2pm. I've caught some nice Northern Pikes at the same spot but they ...more hit around 5-7pm. And yes it was an amazing feeling and an awesome fight.
Gave up fishing for about 7 years after getting back from Iraq and now I'm back full swing. Only go for monster fish but I catch a little bit ...more of everything. Hoping to be able to start getting in some tournaments again soon.
