I had a couple of hours to kill last night so I went out to the river with my brother armed with what I had learned from the BOC over the last few weeks. First throw of the cast net landed 20+ shad. The river is really fast right now due to flooding in PA, so I found a place that looked good on the sonar and had a nice current break. I put a few lines out with live shad, before I got the last line out my first rod went down, I got a little ahead of myself and tried to set the hook too early not just once but twice! The third time was the charm, I let the fish load the rod up real good and then I set the hook, 12 lb flathead, the first flathead I have caught but not the last.
