That's a great fish on such light gear...with these new bag limits you can bag out very quickly if you find the fish, so whether you catch and release or not, why not challenge yourself a little?

 

Did you get him deep or shallow? Guessing shallow, kind of hard to handle lots of lead with 6 lb gear! Was it bait or lure? Again, great catch!
