    I was finally able to get Travis (T-Man) in the boat tonight. I've known Travis since he was a little kid (prob 6 years old or so, if I really stop & think about it). I wa shoping to get him a new personal best channel, but failed. :angry: We had abotu 2 hours to fish. I landed two channels, the biggest pictured below. The channel was a fighter! He stayed on the bottom, making me think he was a 5-10# Flathead, then got wrapped in the motor, I got that loose, then got wrapped in the anchor line....Man this little dude was strong. I est him to go about 5#'s. It was a very fun fight. While I was fighting this one, my other rod went down, having a smaller channel (aprox 2-2 1/2 #), it was my 1st "double" since my "Double Flatheads" from last August. Travis had a good time and so did I. It was a fun way to spend a couple hours.

    Looks like you guys had a good time. Man, if that channel you got put on some more weight, he could be around 8lbs, he's got the length for it.
