    Nice flatties. I'll be setting out soon for my first of the year and hope I'll do at least half as good as you did.

    well first me and my son went and caught bait. then we went to the hony hole put 4 poles out two with 20# test 2 with 50 # test got there about 6 oclock within 30 to 40 min we got a hit on one of the poles with 20 # test i grabed the pole and held it. well nothing happened i sat it back down . then it took off again and my son pick it up and set the hook. he started to real it in and boy did u start to shake when i seen a 40 to 45 " musky come up top and started to ggive it heck i turned to get the net and turned back around and he said it got off. it made me sick so we tied up again an then one of the poles started in the river because i didnt have my bait clicker on so i got it and it stop running. so i baited up again usuing gills. and about 30 min later one took offon one of the poles with 20 lbs test on it so i set the hook and it broke my line. so i baited up again and set it down then the same pole that almost got pulled oin took offf again so i clicked the clicker off and set the hook and man i was in a fight 30# flat my best yet. this all happened befor dark i was home by 9:30 with a big ol flat to show everybody.:big_smile:
