I heard skip has a big bungee cord back there strung between two trees and he snaps himself out like a giant sling shot!?!

Every fish I weighed on my scale were about a half pound more than the board estimated. So if the 6.4 was from the board - it was probably  7lb on a digital scale.

Once they get that big the scale on the board is pretty close.  Give or take a few ounces depending on girth and spawn, but still relatively close.  Seems like when I asked Bobber he said it went 6, don't know if that was scaled or not.

Lets get those waypoints!

200 yards out from blue sea wall. Mepps spinners were the key.

Unless you got a flatbottom jetboat or are plum crazy you don't want those waypoints.  From what I hear you have to get your boat up to 100 mph and then launch off a ramp built out of old VW's while trimming the motor up, then barrel roll the boat through a ring of fire and torpedo under the water when you land to clear the razor wire running over the water. :o :o :o  And that's just to get back there  :o :o :o  Coming out is a whole other challenge with the fire breathing dragon that's mad at you for catching his supper and all!!!!
