I did have another hit that ran the same way when I was takin pics. That one broke off. Jermy won the chicken dinner. It was at a power plant. Only 8 feet deep but the water is 70 deg. Then its official I got my goal for the year already, wanted to catch a flathead. Now for last years, a 30lb channel and hopefully some more flattys.
where was you fishing?? what lake i mean? i love fried chicken.
this pic was thursday evening. 2 days after i was out side in a sweatshirt.
we used to go to powerton lake over by pekin in the winter months to fish but i havent for a few years.

im about an hour from the illinois where im at. dont go there much. around peoria its wide as hell and polluted and you cant eat much. the flying carp are thick around havana. we went down this fall and caught a few with nets. as they jumped lol. they are really good eating. and the river is way better quality down that way. its a good place to fish and im planning on doing a few trips that way this year.
down around havana its 1/3 the width of what it is around peoria. it looks like the mississippi around that area. there quite aways apart but both right at 45 min to an hr from me.
ya when i asked where you were fishing i had thought you were from illinois. you are closer to the rock river. thats a great flathead river.
