I went out for a fish yesterday and didn't have very high hopes. I was fishing in the Twin waters canals. I have caught some good bream in there but that is about it.

I was just fishing the margins around snags and all of a sudden I hooked up to a Jack!

Good times, I was pretty wrapped and I still am! Only a little fella but syill pretty cool.

Thanks guys, I tried to put a photo on here but it was telling me it was too big.

I have no idea how to change it, is there any other way to put one up?

If your on an iPad/tablet etc download a free photo re-sizer app. On this iPad I have an app called Image Size and on my phone an app called Photo Resizer. On my laptop I simply use the Edit function in Windows Live Photo Gallery to Resize photos.

The problem you have is that the resolution is too high. Reduce the size of your photos to 720 x 600 and they will upload just fine.

Yep plenty of apps to resized. And its better to use them than dropping you pic resolutio on your camera or phone. This way if you catch that prize winning fish. You'll be able to enlarge it. Without it getting pixelated. Thats my opinion anyway. You can always make it smaller.
Congrats on the Jack.
