    A local college football player went out bass fishing and ends up with this monster. He's probably hooked after that fight. :lol: Here's the article for anyone who wants the details. I think it's great that he let it go for it to grow into the new record. Now the rest of us have a chance too.

    :lol: I had a feeling you'd get a kick out of that one. Might be what those Mon monsters have been waiting for. Who knew our local fish were so confused. :roll_eyes:

    Kristine - Its funny you should post the article cause when I got to work today one of my co-workers taped it to my locker. Seems the fish was caught near where I been doing some angling! Dang, one of those bites I missed could have been that guy!:crazy::roll_eyes:

    John's work buddies showed it to him too. They've been trying to get us to go to Erie with them, but apparently they're fishing in the wrong area. :tounge_out: Since you know where he is (and what he likes to snack on) maybe you'll be pulling the next record out. He's got to have a parent or older sibling around there somewhere.

    Thats a great story, I've caught channel cats on lures but never a flathead.
