busted my personal best channel record today by 4lbs. fought this Behemoth (16.15, close enough to 17 for me!) for 1hr on a medium heavy trolling rod with 15lb test in heavy current. thought for sure i had a 30+lb flattie, but im more happy with this channel than a big flattie, never imagined there was a channel in this river this size! pics do this fish no justice but the film on the camcorder does:big_smile: also a pic of Nightprowlers ANOREXIC 8lb 'er. other than this it was a slow day, we got about 10 channels and a small flattie in 6hrs.
