Default blackwater 4th july gotta see

Went to blackwater this morning fishing with my wife, things were pretty slow caught 10 small trout and a few small reds. My wife hung one good fish and it broke the line pretty quick, then i hooked up with a monster, the drag started singing and at first i couldnt even turn the fish around. My wife got the anchors up and i went chasing him down for about the next 25 minutes, i finally saw the fish and it was a big jack. I was not equipped to handle this fish, my small spinning rod and 30 lb braid was put to the test. I still cant believe this fish was hanging around I 10 bridge that far up river. He was almost 40 pounds , just . I usually dont eat them, but i couldnt revive him after the fight so i will give him a shot at the dinner table, enjoy the pics.

Tip on cooking that thing: Heat a cast-iron skillet on high for 10 minutes, add lots of butter. Drop the fish in the trash and eat the skillet.

They just need alot of prep work, you have to bleed them, then cut out the blood lines, and then soak them in milk overnight to draw all the blood out, then they aint bad to eat. Just too much work normally, but i try not to let any fish go to waste, and since this one expired from the fight i had to keep him.
