    I had another big one hooked up, besides this one, for a few minutes but he started fighting like i hooked a MACK TRUCK. Got him close to the surface and then he dove back to the bottom and snapped 80# powerpro line. Almost laid down in the bottom of the boat, but we did end up with this good one.

    Congratulations Kelly,Nice Flat. Now with that said What kind of Knot are You Tying with that power pro? Polimar Knot I have learned is the best with braid. and maybe You might back off on the drag just a little and let the rod work for You a little more and ware that Mac Truck (Big Flat) down more before trying to boat that Bad Boy JMHO.And a Big Ol Welcome to the BOC from Iowa. J.D.:wink:

    Congrats on a real nice fish!

    Where did you catch him?
    (No secrets, just what water were you fishing?)
