did you catch those pretty much back to back? those are some good looking fish.

be happy man, you just caught a giant cat. You look like you were trying for walleye and this is what you got instead.

50# went back in the river the 49 died on me to much stress from the fight and warm water but it is getting smoked so not a total waste but i am not to happy about it i would like to see both back in the water.

Yeah that's a great question. I've heard many times that big fish won't hang out in the same spot, but I don't really believe it. I haven't ever proven it wrong by catching two 40+ pounders in one spot in one night, though.

Very nice fish, sorry to hear of the one that didn't make it, but it does happen. At least it didn't go to the coon!

I will find a picture of a similar catch. A friend and I found a hole to try 2 years ago that we wanted to fish. First fish he caught was 44lbs 10oz. About 10 minutes later he finally casted out another bait to the same spot and within 30 seconds to a minute he had on another big one. The 2nd fish ended up 43lbs 12oz. Both caught in the same spot within minutes of each other. Also to top that off we heard a big flat swirl as it was chasing bait so we moved to a different location and he ended up catching that one too. It went just over 32lbs. We couldn't believe it, all of those big fish from the same hole in one night. It was a pretty good night of fishing.
