Its a fillet knife. You know how big they are.

http://www.restaurantsource.com/prodDet ... PC-Pak,MX1 Same knife, different color.

8" Blade + 4-5" Handle = 12-13" Knive. I would measure it to the inch, but it is on the boat.

This what you said at first. A 12 in blade plus 5 in handle is a 17 in knife and the macks are like 3 times the length of the knife.

I wasn't thinking right. 12-13" Knife. You have seen fillet knives. They are big macks. We had about 6 more about the same size too, but we filleted them before we remembered about the pics.

Both caught on X-Raps. My fish was one of about 30 caught that size that day (May 09). When I was bringing my fish in the big one was the follower and it ate Elias' plug.

The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad.
