    awsome flathead, i never really thought of trout for bait, i always seem to use bluegill, goldfish, or bullheads. keep catching 'em, but remember to leave a few for the rest of us.

    Way to go Mark!!! Nice Flattie! He sure done a number on that Trout. Was that a live Trout or a frozen one? What length and action St. Croix rod are you using?

    Caught the flatty on frozen trout the mangled trout was tore up by some channels i think the fish couldnt even pull out the baitrunner he thought he would have a little snack. The rod is a six foot six St Croix extra heavy power with fast action this rod is the best rod imo worth every penny!

    Guys at work were asking me about a big Cat caught at Neville Island. They said it was on the news. I didn't watch TV at all today before work so I didn' know anything about it. The fact that yunz guys are talking about it must mean that someone caught a big one.
