What a night! I finally caught my first big flathead! after weeks of failing to hook one of these beauties I just couldnt keep myself at home on my day off. Headed out to bartlett With my bro's grabbed some gills and headed to the river! After setting up camp we moved down the river a bit more it was about 1:30 in the morning when pole fell over. I got lucky cause he ran towards the boat and the fight wasnt long. my scale read 17lb. we got a couple more good runs but they were line busters! I want to thank everyone on the boc for all the helpfull tips & advice. cant wait to get out there and do it again! :big_smile: Oh one more thing After a couple of photos I released him!
