    Man, it feels good to finally break 30#. I've been paying my dues the last couple of years. I'm happy with this fish, but theres a "The One That Got Away" story from today, that will have me wondering for a very long time.

    This was a GMR flathead caught between Indian Lake and Cincinnati.

    FYI: It also figures that I got it when I was alone. A big thanks goes out to Dinkbuster and his g/f Vickie for leaving the Reds game and coming to take a picture for me.

    Way to go Bryan. That's a good lookin' cat. It's also nice to see someone give a believable weight on a fish and not just call it a 50 pounder. Good job.

    Yeap, I know what ya mean. I will always use the legit weight. It doesnt seem to make sense why some folks dont do that. (FYI: this was actually 32#11 oz, so rather than saying all that, it's just a 33.) :smile2:
