    Hey brothers I got my first really big flat of the year on Saturday . It was a 45 lber. I have caught a few BIGONES so far this year but this is the best so far. The bite has really turned on in the last 2 weeks. I Wish all of you the best this year and hope you all set your personal best. I got to get a 60lber so I have to catch on heck of a fish. Here is it is
