    Went out tonight by myself without a camera or scales and caught 3 flatheads over 30lbs right in a row!!!:crazy: By the time I got the first fish halfway in one of my other poles was going out. Got the first flathead on the bank and grab the second rod, fish on!! Landed the second one and was checking him out thinking man, I just got a nice double. Thats when my last rod started that slow, steady, clicker. :big_smile: Holy crow, another one. Yes a tripple!!!!!!! These fish were beat up really bad and had flat bellys. Two of the fish were almost the exact same size but one was a little longer and heavier, maybe 35-37lbs. I released all three of these awesome fish.
