    Went out with Ben Noll tuesday night. We caught 4 flatheads for over 75 pounds alltogether.

    Started out after 6pm, got anchored up and it started to rain till 9 or there abouts. Once it quit raining the fish started hitting. I caught an 8 pound flat, then Ben caught one alittle bigger, then 10 minutes later he caught a 15 pounder. We had a few more runs the next hour and a half but no commitments lol. Then right at midnight I hooked and caught this nice 42 pounder. We only stayed till 1:30 but no more runs after the big boy.

    It's tied 1-1 unless ole Skippy has been hiding things from me. we mutually agreed on 35+lb fish.

    Just wanted to prove to PA that I won't back down to any Ohio schoolyard bullies!:smile2::wink:



    You still da Man, skip!

    No need to worry about sandbagging Tan, 1 to 1 it is. But that can change at any time now. The next 3 weeks are gonna go by quickly. I'll bet the water will be in the 40's by then. I gotta step it up now. Good luck
