    :smile2:I met up with Snagged2 this last week to do a bit of fishing. We went our own ways and had different results. I had fun with 2 nice flathead about 10 lbs and he had alot of action and caught several keeper fish. I'll let him post his details if he cares to. :tounge_out: It was great to get some action again. The first flat I caught thought he was a 30 pdr he put some serious bend on my stiffest pole.

    I went out again last night... not quite the same. Caught one flat about 3pds in the early morning. no pic

    I guess a little more info wont hurt... They both came on small bluegill cut in half and threaded on a 7/0 khale. I didn't get a single bite on live bait whatsoever that night. However one of the flats was extremely fat and when I cut him up he had 2 large bluegill in his stomach. :crazy:
