I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever that if I still lived up there I would be in BIG trouble.

That's the reason we do this crazy sport right there!

dtro: You do essentially the same thing here with the cats! How could it get worse? :-)

The guy with the 55 incher is 6'3"....gives you an idea of how big the fish really is!

The guy holding the 55 is a much smaller person too, so I proportion it looks larger. Either way, they are both giants. IMO there is no mistaking the first one is definitely bigger. The guy holding it is eclipsing the sun! LOL

Interesting story:

Was fishing Big V last week and saw a fish that I didn't even believe could be at first due to the shear size, until it started swimming away. Saw her 3 times total once on quick sideways run at my lure. Was telling someone up there about her and he said that happened to be the spot where the 58" was taken, what a fish.

I saw more BIG fish last week than I've ever seen before. Pretty sure I saw about a half dozen different fish in the mid 50's...yes mid 50's not low. It was just amazing. You know things are good up there when Tony Grant, Greg Thomas, Bob Mesikomer, Hammernick, and I don't know how many other big names were all up there recently. I saw about half of these guys running around out there either doing shows or with their clients.

That's great that you saw a fish that big Tippman. It's awesome when you can see one that can re-define your perception of the relative size of these fish.

Sweet monsters! Too bad the exif data was stripped from those photos before posting. Could at least have gotten date and time of day that way.

Congrats to those two dudes!

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • He is still out there, at the hearing for DeVoss, proving why he needs to retire to his new 600k lake home on Lake Champlain where he can spend his days searching for Champ, the monster said to live in lake Champlain.     http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/314783-assange-lawyer-conditions-not-met-for-assange-manning-extradition-offer   Almost got him!
