    I had a real good evening on the "Big O" last night! We got on the water at 8:40 and at 9:30 I was fighting the first fish of the evening. It turned out to weigh in at a couple ounces over 50 pounds! After some photos I eased her back in the river and she took off like a rocket!
    I jokingly told my buddy.."Well, I'm ready to go home now!" but we stayed until 1 AM. I let him have the rest of the fish which were flatheads at 26.5", 28.5" and a 32"..........and a gar.
    I may have to go again tonight! Here are pics of the 50 pounder.

    Thanks for the report and congrats on a nice flat, I agree the Ohio River seems to be much better than it was a couple weeks ago. Good luck next time out :big_smile:
