would have been close guys, I was standing beside Nick (Terminator) when they measured theirs and it was 60.5" at the fork,62" overall and 25" girth, not quite as fat looking as ya'lls. What was the girth on ya'lls Donnie? Don told me but I don't remember. What time did ya'll make it back in.....I'm thinking it's time for the F250's........

scott,

we didnt measure that, i wanted to hurry and get him back in the water (thats why i dont have a pic w/ it)....this boy was FAT ...yea its time for a new boat all together..weve got to get this one gone first...we got in around 10:00. The motor was actually ok, it was a fuel issue that got us. We lost it about 15 miles from the the first bouy and had to do about 9mph...not fun

I heard of several fuel issues during the tourney, I heard George and Jamie's was a fuel or fuel pump issue and not a blown motor too.....wonder if several of ya'll got some bad gas or it has to do with the ethanol working on some of those worn pump diaphrams....

Don told me ya'll tailed that thing, that's a dang fish to be tailing! In talking with the Terminator guys, they said theirs came right to the top and rolled on her side too.....20 min fight tops

Haven't seen a weather report for that weekend but must have been choppy to rough, as in "Contender Weather" as all I see posted in the winning stats are Contenders!!! Damn, that brings back some memories of "longer, harder, faster, farther, WOWWWWWWWWWW!!" Pictures of fish like that one James is struggling to hold really tries to lure me back into it because eventhough I accomplished 10 times what I ever expected to and then some, I never caught a "big 50" (like 56.5-59.9) nor a 60 obviously. Quint Higdon(Buck Wild)and I caught one "bout that big" in 1998 at WD-117 the Wed or thurs before the ADSFR and of course like greenhorn rookies we tailed it scaled it in a matter of 5 seconds and realized it was bottomed out at 60lbs and even with a twitch where I have had a fish or two later weigh in the 52-53 range bounce all the way up to 38-42 abd back to bottom out real quick, this fish went thathunk and damn near tore the springs out of the chatillion and even with a good kick never let up out of the bottom out "v". I truly believe it was 60's and if not than 59.887 or something but a 62.887 would shock me less!! Damn fine fish to all.

How many boats did they get? Is that the end of D7 for this year?
