    Fishing Lake Wylie, NC (South Fork River) the 1st week of July this year. My grandaughter caught her 1st Flathead, weighing 22lb 4oz (at age 13) and also caught 4 nice crappie that night that we later used as bait.
    The fight took 15 minutes, and had the rod SLAMMED against the rail 3 times! She caught it on a 6" White Perch. Crappie weren't biting, so we took 2 catfish rods (just in case) ....... worked out good FOR HER!:smile2:

    Congrats to the both of you! Her for catching a really nice cat that will be stuck in her mind forever and to you for taking her out and being there when she caught it. Great times, great memories!
