Your on em' man! Way to go!

BTW, how do your arms stay attached? One day one of those toads are going to jerk them out of socket! You might need to consider some kind of brace!  ;D LOL

Nice fish man!

Very nice fish!  I can just imagine the damage you would do if you lived in Cali.

thanks guys.  i always appreciate your kind words.  honestly guys, the fish i catch are much more of a testament to the fine fishin' holes i am blessed with than to any skill or ability on my part.  the real props go to guys like randall, chris, bizz, catt, mattlures, supermat, and all the other guys who whack toads consistently out of high pressured water.  

I can just imagine the damage you would do if you lived in Cali.
 

thanks bro, but i'm sure the only damage that would be done if i tried to fish in cali would be to my ego. ;D

hope y'all are catchin' some too.  :)

Awesome fish. Did you catch it using a bluegill? I'm going out later today and I'm going to try this technique again. i used to do it as a kid, and since I've been watching your posts, i'm convinced, only real hawgs will hit that. Also, newb question here, but is it necessary to use 50Lb test? Would 25-35lb done just as good? Just curious on your setup thats all.

Again, great run of awesome fish here in the past several weeks Hawgcaller. :)

thanks buddy.  yep, it was on a bluegill.  and to be honest any size bass will hit one, depending on the size of the gill.  it is not necessary to use 50 lb. line, or even braid.  if you are talking about  25-35 lb. mono, then that is probably gonna be too heavy.  unless you are bed fishing, the bluegill needs to be able to swim around naturally and "tote" whatever size line (and hook)  you are using.  i catch plenty of bass with a spinning rod and 10 lb. line or less using bluegills.  the lighter you can get away with for the area you are fishing, the better because it enables the gill to act more naturally.  just make sure you have your drag set properly if you do this because you are right, this technique can produce some mighty big bass.  good luck with this buddy.  :)
