Congratulations! Awesome fish, thanks for taking me along on the ride (the story). Did you ever figure out how much your scale is off?

@BazooNot yet, I still have the 10lb plate weight that weighed 9-10 on my scale, and thanks for reminding me that I need to bring it to the grocery store. 


Side note, 2023 has been a hell of a roller coaster of a year for me. 


I caught that big girl in February, and then on March 3rd I got laid off my job after a bigger corporation bought us out.  I worked there almost 10 years. 


Then April 15th a drunk driver ran off the road, drove all the way through our front yard, and crashed into our dining room.  Made front page of the local news.  THANK GOD we are all OK, but all 5 of us have been displaced from our home ever since.  We still haven't moved back in yet, but the remodel is underway, and I'm finally starting to get excited seeing all the changes we're making to the house start to take shape. 


I got a new job with a promotion and better pay in late June, around the same time my old lab passed away after almost 15 years raising him since he was a puppy.  That was really hard.  Finally now after a couple of months I'm starting to settle in and feel good about life again.   


Our GC says we could potentially move back home by Christmas or even possibly by Thanksgiving if everything goes as planned.  I kind of doubt it but we'll wait and see.  I'm getting really tired of living in a subdivision with a postage stamp yard.  I keep telling myself it's temporary. 


So in case anyone has been wondering where I went, I had to take a little time off from bass fishing to deal with all that ****.  But now I'm back at it chasing that 10 pounder!

Really sorry to hear about your Lab ~

I say a new puppy could make a great addition to your newly renovated home.

Thanks for the update. It sure sounds like a heck of a year. My condolences for your dog. We lost one 2 years ago and it was pretty rough. I cried like a baby when I had to put my cat down. I currently have a boxer; she don't know she ain't a people.
