    I wont get into any details because it makes me ill thinking about it..This fish looked bigger than the 50 I caught three years ago..AS soon as I casted out and put my rod in the holder it doubled over, the fight was long and hard in heavy current..I cant ever remember losing a big flathead at the bank before....Gonna take awhile before I get over this one :(

  4. Awh come on 'Flathead Jack' you have got to give us the details. It's alright though man, it happens to the best of us. Your having a good year, you'll hook him again in due time.......TightLines!

    Wow, the irony Jack. I just got back from fishing with my girlfriend. Took her out in the hopes she would get her first flathead. I hooked up with something big, let it run for a good minute. Never gained on it once. Got me into a submerged tree and hung me up. I waited it out a good 5 minutes hoping it would come free, in my mind I was honestly debating going in, but quickly threw away that idea. It ticked me off something royal... I wasn't even going to post tonight, just browse the boards and get some sleep. She posted the pictures of the dink channel I caught. I don't think this fish was 50lbs big, but I know it was my new PB. Sorry to hear about your luck tonight man, you're not the only one.

    I hate that for you Jack and Tom, but it's part of the drug of catfishing. Heck, I'm a relative newb and I'm all ready hooked. It keeps stirring your imagination, just knowing fish like that are around.
     
  7. Hey guys that beats no hookups...
    Does Friday the 13th mean anything to you now???

    I have been gone all weekend, so Now I get to talk SMACK!

    You lost the fish becasue I wasnt there. In a huge turn of events, I have been briging GOOD luck to people this year.

    You see I am disappinted in both Flathunter & Fishman, they are making da family look bad, and no one, I mean no one makes da Catfish Mafia look bad. Both of you may had broken your PB's. We can forgive this time, but each of you will be responsible for your actions, as punishment you must carry my rod holders and rods next trip out!
     
  10. That stinks,but anyone that has fished for awhile has been there.

    I think if you drive over a combined 100 miles each trip that should take the palce of a couple steps! (Nomatter where I go South to the best part of GMR or up to Jacks, I've got 100-170 miles) My poor Jeep's going to die!

  19. Try fishing out of a Pontiac Sunfire. Dang I miss my truck; Too bad the gas prices and college tuition forced me to sell it.
