29 3/8 Jeff so I went 29 for the entry .So close but no banana. 12 lb

I think this picture shows it better

Okay I'm adjusting to 29 points, but you already have another 30 so didn't last long.... Nice job, maybe a reward for the honesty... Nice job... J

30 inch

Wow, what a fish again, trusting you didn't think it made the half, I will call this one 30 points even though it looks very close to 30.5... Nice job John, almost at your 90 points, this might be the fastest anyone has gotten to that level... Great job... Later J

29.5

dang Jeff I forgot to put down the banner. just noticed that

John we understand it happens and banners get forgotten we aren't to professional here, so we allow for a little human error... It's all for fun anyway.... Heck of a fish again... good for 29.5 points, just about across the 90 point line... great job...

I thought there was a rule against crossing the 90 point line before the first of May?

Seriously though, well done!

Awesome! John, you are a phenomenon--scientists should study you, but I don't think they will be able to discover the intangible mysteries that make a master fisherman like you.
