tonight i decided since the weather has been stable a good week to go on my first flathead outing of the year. only had a couple live bluegill so i only rigged one of my rods up for the flatheads. 7/0 circle sea with a 4oz pyrimid sinker. not 2 minutes after i threw out of my first bluegill my bell started to jingle. i was suprised at how little he loaded the rod, but i slowly realed in until i knew for sure he was hooked. didnt run or struggle too much so i thought he was pretty small. my guess is he tipped the scale at 13-15lbs. my new record and first of the season! woot!
