I got to go to the big pee dee river this weekend with a couple other guys from my club and the flatties were still hot in the cool morning. Between all three boats we netted and released 126lbs of fish by 12:00. The biggest of them was a pair of 24lb flatties. We only caught 3 blues but had plenty of blues bitting but not commiting to the bait. If you get a chance try some early winter flatties before the water temp drops to much.
