    yeah screw the elitism, that's an awesome fish for the kid! It'd be pretty fun on my little fenwick utra-lite set-up, though I'm not sure I could even pull it in if it decided just to become dead weight in the water...

    I find myself getting a little elitist any time someone catches more or bigger fish than I do. That or throwing rocks seems to make me feel better.

    I have a friend that works at a upscale establishment in Redmond. Boone came in one day and paid for his services with a credit card. When asked to sign the receipt he said "no." When asked why not Boone replied "my signature is worth money." He finally signed with an "x."

    What a pompous jackass. He isn't even that great of a ballplayer.

    what a jumbled thread, someone shoot it! the real question is: could brett boone have landed that fish, and if he did would he hug it like the little kid?"

    i agree with dipsnort on this one. Good for the kid. and not one guy on this forum would turn down a run or two with that fish if it was cruising at his feet, even if it was in a bathtub. Don't we all get the secret urge to grab rod from one of the kids at the TU tub at the fair? or is it just me? :p

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: No and he would have charged the kid for a photo and personal appearance.

    I would agree with Tony...I would love to hook into a fish that size.
