    Jay;
    Now that I've started fishing again if my first one is as large as yours is I will consider my luck to be off and running good!:big_smile:
    What a GREAT way to start!!! Congrats, and here is hoping you have many, MANY, more like that one or larger in your fishing days ahead!! :smile2:

    Congrats a nice flathead. I just got home from a tourney in which I caught a 28 pounder. Man those flats are fun. Vern

    Nice going. I got my first one by accident trying to catch a Muskie with a live bream. Everyone said there was no big cats in the river I fish. Me and a 6" bream found out different. Been after them ever since.
