    Heres the pic of the 37# flathead my partner hooked up with..
    Had his Tica rod bent like the St Louis Arch :wink:

    For comparison, he is 6' 5" tall...

    I gotta get over there. I've been meaning to all summer, just haven't got it done. I have a feeling that I'm just getting into the good time of year for the powerplant lakes.

    If your on the bank, try to the damn face or the Hot ditch arm (middle)...

    If your bringing a boat, 25HP limit, and now they have most the lake closed to fishing traffic for hunting... Boats have to stick to middle and east arm...
