    Got out Sunday morning for a few hours. I wanted to go Saturday night but fishing out of my aluminum boat in the lightning is not my way of having fun. So I got out at day light Sunday. Got my first bite at 9:30am a small 5lb flat on a live chub. At around 11:00am I saw my line bouncing so I picked up my rod, It bumped a few times so I figured it was a turtle. I set the hook and was surprised with a 20lb 4oz flat on a live sucker. I didn't figure on catching any larger cats in the part of the river I was fishing. Both fish were released unharmed. Sorry no pics because I was by myself. I fished till 4pm and never had another bite anywhere else I tried.

    good job man. I think a 20# Flath is a trophy out of the GMR.
