I put in around 10:00 and seen very few (all were short) till 1:15, had five in the cooler in the next 10 minutes then my trolling motor prop went skipping across the water. Three were 13 inches and one was 23 inches and the last was 26 inches.

Report sounds like you stuck a couple of nice ones. Hope you got a pic or two. 26", yeah that'd work just fine! Great job!

No pictures, I was pissed when I got back and did not want to go in the house for the camera. I had my second tire blow out in less than a week.

Dam! Sounds like you had an expensive week of fishing. Murphys law comes to mind. If it can go wrong it probablly will. I cant believe you didnt get a pic of a 26 incher.... I would be mounting that thing and hanging it on the wall.

I have had nights like those too!!! Hate that you didn't get a pic of the 26" one. The last biggest one I got was 24 1/2" and it was 6.12lbs and the biggest we have ever gotten was 28" and it weighed 8.8lbs. If it was healthy it definately fell into the DOORMAT category. Maybe yall will have a little better luck next time. Might not be a bad idea to pick up a spare prop for that TM. I used to have a Motor Guide so I feel your pain.
