Hey all. Went down to Pensacola, Florida to see some relatives and do some fishing. Well with all the weather like it was with Tropical Storm Faye coming in and all we didn't make it out in the Gulf to do some deep sea fishing. Instead we ended up going to my grandfather's cabin to shoot guns and catch some bream and whatever else we could. The cabin is right on the Blackwater River of Alabama and is partly brackish water because its real close to the bay where we were. Anyways I brought my castnet down and caught some small mullet. It's a saltwater baitfish that runs up those rivers down there on occasion. So my grandfather, my brother, and I decided to go ahead and set some limb lines with the mullet I caught. Well to hurry up and get this story over with, at around 11pm when we went and checked the lines this 21 pound flathead was on one of them. I definitely wasn't expecting that but its the first one that i've caught so I thought I'd share. This was measured with a rusty spring scale so I don't know if it could have weighed more but it sure seemed like it did. It measured 36 inches in length but forgot to get the girth. That river is crazy. You can be fishing with a minnow and catch crappie, bass, catfish or catch salwater gafftopsail catfish, flounder, and redfish.
