Slow start to a good morning

Big girl gets caught again

Posted by Phil Lilley on September 23rd, 2017


Fished my heart out for this one, after looking at the pics, she was caught earlier this week by a guides client. I taped her at 32″. I would like to say thank you to the old timers who have passed down a lot of hard earned wisdom to me and my friends in the parking lot and at the pavilion.

Thank you  to the guys with the tape and who walked down after I flashed my light and hollered for them!!

Taneycomo September 10 report
