    went with my buddy "fishin' fool" out to a local lake in moberly tonight to get a few lines wet and try to catch some fish. caught some perch for bait and got the boat out and anchored. at about 9:30 i had a good bite and set the hook. got the fish to the boat and it was a 13 1/2 lb channel (personal best) which beat my old pb of 8lbs by quite a bit. so i was feeling pretty good of myself at the time. rebaited and threw my pole back out in the water. was sittin around b s for a couple minutes and bam the same pole i just threw out smashed down again. when this fish came up it was much larger than the last one. it was a 23 1/2 lb flathead. not only was this my personal best but it was the first flathead i had ever caught on rod and reel. man o man i had a smile on my face from ear to ear.:big_smile: sure makes it worth fishin to hook into a big fish like that. i have already accomplished all my goals i wanted to get this year fishin so now its time to step it up and keep hittin it hard. just want to say thanks to paul for havin such a great website and to all of my fellow brothers on here for all of the great info. on a side note both of these fish were released especially since this was in a small city lake that conservation swears has no flatties in it:wink: im leaving for memphis in the morning but jimmy is supposed to post the pics for me so hopefully u guys will get a chance to check them out.

    Bet you're glad I talked you into fishing that lake last night aren't you Jeff? Glad I could be there and be a part of the experience. Two PB's in one night is a pretty good feat (even though I didn't catch anything) :sad2:.
    Just thought you guys should know, I did let him fish in my spot because he's always saying "Ahh, there ain't no big fish in here". Just wanted to prove him wrong...or should I say, let him prove himself wrong :wink:.

    I'll get the pics uploaded to my computer and get them posted on here in a few minutes. CONGRATS Jeff!!!

    OK guys...Here's the pics of Jeff's fish. If you notice, one of the pictures shows the flatty swimming away after his photoshot. Once again Jeff, congratulations on your successful night of fishing!!!

    No Josh, we fished for about three hours and those were the only two fish that were caught.
