    Well... took her back this weekend and she wiped her 22 pounder pb away and pulled in a 28.5. I barely helped any with this one... told her it's all her next time :wink: Here's her pic with her new pb http://www.catfish1.com/gallery/files/2/2/8/7/4/kristen-28-5.jpg

    On a side note, Had another flathead (5.5lbs) swallow a 7/0 circle sea hook. That's three in the last 6 months that I've been trying them that have swallowed them. Maybe I need to try a bigger circle hook? Also had out 8/0 OShawnessy(sp?) and some 25 year old 9/0 plain old Mustad hooks. Those two hook the fish right but I lose more bait over night than with the circle sea.
