    Well I wrote out the entire story of our fishing trip but when I went to post it , I lost everything and it came up a error on my server, And I am not going to type the whole thing out again, I will do the story in Catfish Now Magazine for November issue.

    So in General here is what we got last night , I got a 30 # flathead , and 40 # White Albino Bluecatfish, and a 43 # Bluecatfish, I was fishing with Rodpod who got a 10 # Channel Catfish and a 8 # Bluecatfish, it was a great evening fishing, under the worst fishing conditions, 10-12 mph winds out of the east, and river dropping , it had dropped over a foot in the last 12-14 hours. Here is a couple of pictures.

    First one is the 30 # flathead

    Second is the 40 # Albino Blue Catfish :eek:oooh:

    Third is the 43 # Blue catfish

    Yes it was the first one I have ever seen, it was a very pretty fish. Here is another shot of the fish.

    And I put the Flathead Picture in there on my 10/0 King Kahle hook in the fishes mouth.

    Wow, what an exciting trip. That albino would be my pick of the liter. We stocked our pond with channels a few years back and ended up with 1 albino and the last time I caught it it was up to 13 pounds or so. Thanks for showing us your pictures DH.

    Thanks everyone, it was a good evening, the winds are the same tonight and the weather the same, but the river looks to be on the way back up some for this evening, it might get better tonight.
