Team Fatal Biggest fish!

Just wanted to give props to Denny and the whole SPUC group for another top notch event. Thanks to the weather gods for blessing us with an awsome day on the water.Best vis we have ever had out at 150' that was almost top to bottom. Fish were not stacked up but we did find at least one nice carbo that weight in in 5th place at 57.12lbs that was boated by my man Brandon Brooks. Had a great crew that worked well together and would take them to battle on any given day!!! See you all again next year.

That fish took 4 drops to boat . Three shafts and a few dagger holes to the brain. Brandon did two of those drops and he had to pull him out through a hole about 16-20 inches in diameter. DiverDave and OldBateman had put the first 2 shafts through his lungs(swim bladder) & liver to hole him up.

Nice fish! They must be excellent shooters..I don't think I've ever been able to shoot a fish in the lungs, yet.

Great trip with a great team. And yes thanks Nailman, Brandon and Brody for putting it all together. Also yes Old Bateman and myself are good shooters not everyone can hit a fish in the lungs, that is why I have a 54 inch Lung Gun made exculsive for me by Biller.

Hey Stephen! how are you good buddy? You will find many of these guys put their shafts in the "Urinary Bladder" or "defacation canal" aka "Anus" on your fish drawing. So don't sweat the lung jokes.
