    Its like hunting a wary ol 10 point buck. Ya got put your time in do everything right and still ya wont score till the dice fall right. If they ant hungery the stars and moon ant right and stuff dont aline it ant goina happen lol. Case point a 65LB FLATT my PB on light 10lb gear fishen for eater blues. Do I fish for big flatts? Bet your butt I do. Do I catch some goodens? Yep. Its a matter of time and knowhow. Dont give up try dif stuff and when ya get your first monster smile take a pic and share the story.:big_smile: Not to mention been deer hunting 15 years or so breaks for army sevice in there, still ant dropped a 10 point buck lol.
