I think it should be OK to post this!!! and since a sponsor took use on a little trip...

On April 22 2007 My son Blake and I woke and met rsimms for a little cat action for his 13th birthday...well Richard, of http://www.ScenicCityFishing.com , posted the photos and story back when it happened so I wont go into that other then saying it was right at 50 pounds( 49 I think)....

but I will give the rest of the story ....as soon as I got home I ordered the closest replica of my sons catch I could...His was 44L x32 Girth <<I think>> The one I ordered was 44x34... at any rate, it was close enough for us... as some of you know I run about a six- eight month turn around....well its been almost 15 months and I decided it was time to quit putting customer work ahead of my sons...

He has been gone for three weeks taking some marine biology classes at Duke and this is his welcome home present from me....

Just outstanding. Good for you.

But I have a question. That kid in the picture is taking marine bio classes at Duke?

Yeah, but its just a summer camp kinda school( he wont receive credit, just experience)...not to take away from his accomplishments or anything...He took part in the Duke TIP program; due to high TCAP scores... he averages 95%, in the seventh grade was allowed to take the ACT and scored a 22 over all and a 25 I think in science...so he qualified to take science or math classes at duke for the summer...he can go next year too as a ninth grader,,, I think .. I am a proud papa for sure regardless

He must take after his Mom!

Thanks for the plug! That was the fish of a lifetime... but Blake's got lots of time to find a bigger one.

I never saw that cat pic. Lord, I would've remembered it if I had. Just plain phenomenal! I like the mount, too.

That is a great fish Joey.
I am sure he will be excited to see the mount.
