    Well I finally got a flathead to bite last night. I fished one place or another amost twelve hours str. yesterday so Im dragging a little butt today. Hopefully the flats start biting for me but of course I have to work the next 11 days in a row. Now I know he isnt the monster that some of you all bring in but Im glad he wasnt to big that way he can go into the freezer. I really need to put some fish in there for the winter. Sorry about the picture quality I was the only one up when I got home.
