Ain't caught one this big in a long time.
Messed the picture up and you can't even see the end of it.

Pinched it's tail together and it went to right at 16" \:D

Caught it in our neighborhood pond after man whipped me at Garrett Lake today. \:D

Congrats, that is a big slab. Beat my tarp crappie by 3/4 inch \:D but mine was just a fluke, caught trolling in dale hollow. Gotta love the neighborhood ponds.

Very nice. I really like the TARP program. I have 3 on the wall (blue cat, brown trout and musky) Congrats on your TARP fish!

Thanks biglures.
I am wondering now if I should even send it in.
I was in a hurry when I took the picture and didn't even think about closing it's mouth or nothing like that.
Plus I didn't even get it all in the picture. \:\(

Dunno if they would even accept it or not.

I would fill out the form and send it in. That is a trophy fish for that species! I was with Simms when I caught my TARP blue cat. I didn't have a pic of the fish on a ruler so I just sent in the pic of me and my dad holding it. 42" 53lbs. Two weeks after I sent it in someone from the TARP program called me to clarify what county I was in (I had left it blank by mistake). I told him I wasn't really sure and he figured it out when I told him where I was and congratulated me on a fine catch. Every time I look at them on the wall it reminds me of some great trips. Send that bad boy in!
