I got into a some beefy hybrids a couple weeks ago. Since then, my focus has shifted from smallies. I didn't even realize it until a few days back. I was thinking about my past few trips, and realized hybrids is all I've been targeting. Besides one hit, I haven't sniffed one since then. I missed my opportunity when a beast blasted my lure and my drag was too tight and it snapped 12 lb. test like it was nothing. That was one hit over many more hours than I care to admit. In my quest, I have picked up some other decent fish. My first 2 flatheads of the year, one being 24". A couple channel cats, 15" saugeye, and a few decent smallies, but none over 14".
