  2. Congrats Mark!
    I never pegged you for a cat man, but a fish and a screaming drag will do in any storm, eh?
    Way to go!

    Man Nice fish, bet that was a RUSH. CONGRATS....We also fished with those same conditions last night with a light rain on the Scioto and the channels were hitting like crazy, the weather is right.... time to grab the poles.
     
  4. Dink ( my catfishing mentor along with Mellon) did a fine job of landing the fish on the first chance and after getting him out of a snag, i was certainly glad to see him being wrestled out of the water! We hooked a few others but they all came unglued, and did we mention it was down right cooooold out there today in the howling wind.

    LMJ, Heck you name it, Ill fish for it and probably already have, the last 2 years I have put a serious focus on figuring out cats, got a new bigger boat and will spend most of this winter figuring out blue cats.....:D

    Thanks for the pics Dink!

  10. man - awsome fish! you have put in plently of time and where over due for a hog, so well deserved. Very cool that you caught out of your own spot as well.

    Flathead King 06 click...click...click

    looks strikingly close in resemblence to the flathead H2O Mellon caught not too long ago....not saying anything negative by this.....but look at the "scar" on its head....and then check out the one that Bryan caught....could be....even resembles the same place he caught his.....could just be me though

    anymatter--- GREAT FISH!!!! and congrats on the PB
