    Spent Friday night on the pond with two great geusts, Rodman(Joe) and one of his sons Jake. The night was not nearly as productive as we would have liked but Jake did up his best flathead by about 4lb to 19+lb. Although he didn't mind reeling in the little monster he said he wished they would fight a little harder. I feel his pain, for as big as these fish can get I think they need a little bit more attitude. But, needless to say I will keep chasing the critters :D .

    So in search of a better fight I finally got a decent fish to take a bait on my small rod. I was using a 7' H Browning Platinum(just a bass rod) with an Abu 6500 when I landed this little girl. I did make for some more fun, but I still want bigger fish. Specailly on the small rods!

    Here a picture of the stud Jake and my mug next to him!

    That works for me Rob :D

    It seems the more you fish the "luckier" you get :B

    There is a lot to be said for fishing hard and being ready when the big fish bite.

  4. Nice fish Rob. That sure is a nice boat to be flathead fishing with. :D I figure the owner wouldn't like taking it to a couple of the other spots we fish. My carpet is now a permanent brown. ;)

    M. Magis - That boat doesn't discriminate when it comes to catching fish - specially when they come in that size!

    Mike my carpet is the same color! I have taken in so much sand this year that it has started to act like sandpaper and removed some paint :p , but that is what I got her for.

    Robby, if some of the people realized how much time it takes to get "lucky" they probably wouldn't even bother buying the gear to go flat-chasing. Many long hours have passed without so much as a click on those rods.

    As for you old man Misfit. Get your but together and give me a ring. There is always room for you on the bank. Hair on not :D

    Ak, well you're right. I haven't taken much time to fish for anything other than bait, then flats. My girlfriend said she thinks I am addicted to fishing. So I had to tell her, she is right! Man were those words hard to utter to a woman :D .

    Good fishing guys, let the good times role and the cameras will follow!
