    Yep finally did it after 6 or 8 trips out landed a 11lb flat last night, caught it at 1:30 am, have some pictures but still waiting for joe to put em on:wink:. fish was caught on slip rig. 3oz of weight 5/0 live bait hook, with 5 inch blue gill, fish was caught on mud bottom, Noticed my bait was acting very freaked out and actually taking line out while reel was on free spool, so i cranked the bait back to the weight and bam, he doubled my rod right over, was a blast i am hooked on flatheads now for sure. cant wait for the next trip out.......

    Mickey Congrats on your first flathead. No feeling like it huh? It was good meeting you. Finally, a fellow Michigander driving all over to find a flathead. A nyway, let me know when you're going out again, I'll meet up with you.
