    [size=+1]I see a young fellow caught a 55# 44 inch flathead in the Hennepin Canal near Colona, Ill. He used 12# line with a goldfish.[/size]

    That fellow would have to be careful if he joined the BOC. The ones that run it dont like people who use light line and ban them from the brotherhood

    The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.

    I use to fish the canal around Rock Falls years ago and use to catch some nice size channels.
