Fished above lock four on the Monongahela last night and a nice flathead got me out of a speeding ticket.The local tackle shop around my house has fish contests every month with every month being a different species of fish. July is catfish couldnt fish my normal spot with the high water so went to another hole you can fish in high water.Caught six flatheads with the biggest being 20 and a half pounds and a 9 pounder and four fish between 3 and 5 pounds.The owner of the tackle shop always tells me if I get a big one bring it in. So far this month the biggest fish was at nine pounds.So i decide to take the fish and transport it closer to home kept water in the cooler just in case.It is about a twenty minute ride back to where I wanted to tie the fish up so I decide to try to cut some of that time off and going through one little town I see the reds and blues turn on So I quickly pull over and the police officer asks for my license and registration and I hand it to him and tell him I'm sorry I'm in such a hurry I have a big fish in the trunk Im trying to get to the river.The officer tells me if I open the trunk and there is a big fish in there he will let me go. I open up the trunk and show him the fish and he is total amazment and starts laughing and tells me to get out of there and have a good night.Tied the fish up about 2 AM and read the sunday paper till the tackle shop opened weighed the fish and released him back to fight another day. Here is some pics.
