Look what I caught lastnight

I didn't get any big bites for a few hours then I set my pole down and a freakin 5 foot Tarpen hit my bait. By the time I could grab my pole the drag was screaming and I was losing line rapidly. Then snap, the line broke and I was standing there watching this fish go crazy. It was so pissed off and jumping 10 feet out of the water trying to spit the hook. I watched him as he faded into the darkness. I only had 20 lbs test line and he had to have weighed over 100 lbs.. Well I rerigged up and caught a 6 lbs gaftopp. I gave it to the lady in the second pic. She was stoked and said thank you sir. I told her you are welcome maam. Then her and her firends fought over it....

Gafftop tastes good just like channel cats. Now Hardhead saltwater catfish suck, so I have been told.
