    Got to the Fox river at around 6:30 yesterday(Sat) morning.I managed to land 2 within 45mins with live Gills.I really didnt have any hopes of catching any Flats,i was just wishful thinking...Channels were really my target for the morniong,but i`ll take a Flathead anyday!!!The first one was 26.5" and 7.5lbs.The second one was 27" and 8.5lbs.
