    caught this one right at dark. i was using 10 lb. test with a small cheap wal mart spinning combo. what a battle. took me about 10 minutes to get it in. only got one pic thanks to the batteries in my camera going dead:mad: go figure.

    They are hitting good!! Got a 41" at the campground on sat. night, hit a 6" bluegill. Only scales we had bottomed out (30#), we were thinking about 35#... Good job!

    i wish i could have got a better pic that showed how long and wide this fish was. i would say it was between 25 and 30 lbs. i was using a piece of cut bait. it was the biggest shovel head i have caught at the lmr:)
     
  6. if you dont mind me asking what general area were you fishing?

    find some current or a deep hole and you will find catfish
     
  8. Nice Flatty. I have yet to get one out of the LMR, but hopefully soon.
