    Well,I didn't catch my all time PB,but I did catch my PB of 2006.It was a 15lb0oz flathead :big_smile:
    I caught him on the head of an Israeli carp on bottom.I also caught an 11lb9oz with a live 5-6" Israeli carp also on bottom.Add to that 4 channels from 2-4lbs.All in all I had a great night,except for 1 thing...I had my digi cam with me and a 4-pack of dollar store batteries...Big Mistake for trying to be cheap!!! All 4 of the batteries didn't have enough juice to turn on the camera.All my rechargeable batteries weren't charged up so I took the cheapies.Never again will I do that,I didn't get a single pic of the fish.
    Thanks to all those who wished me luck,I really think it worked.I'll probably be asking you all again this weekend,if i'm able to go.:wink:

    Hey John, Sounds Like You Did Really Well To Me, It's Unfortunate About The Camera. I Just Use The Waterproof Disposable Ones From Wally World.

    They Are Cheap & No Battery Problems :roll_eyes: . No Matter What Congratulations :smile2:

    I echo the comment on the waterproof cameras. I ruined the camera that captured the first big blue cat I ever caught. I never got to see the picture.

    The same happened to me but with my bait aerater. Now I know to stick with energizer or duracell batteries.
