    Well I went Walleye fisihing today and got a little more that I bargained for on my minnow at Shelbyville dam in Illinois. Let me tell you this thing on an ultralite and 8lb line was a real trick to get in. Someone had snagged it in the tail before me cause there was a sore and a hook and sinker in it LOL. Well anyhow gots to go, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!


    Pics are in profile I cant get them to load here sorry!

    Nice Flathead. Bet that was fun on light tackle. Those dam Flatheads are always dark like that.

    Yeah that snowy background was a nice touch for those pics huh! I stoped by Catfish Connection or (Pana Bait) for local lingo and had them weigh it and they took a pic to hang on their braggin board inside there, it was 23.5 lbs. All I got to say is that $5.21 for 2 dozen medium minnows that morning was sooooo worth it!

    Oh yeah LOL i caught a real nice walleye last week, it was 22 inches long, but that flathead takes the prize for sure!

    Well I have decided since that catfish are going to bite I would just fish for them and I got another small flathead like 5ish lbs and a Huge Channel that was 15 lbs... This is the biggest channel I have got in a LONG time! Sorry I dont see a whole lot of fish pics on here lately so Ill give you guys something to look at.
