    what a great night of fishin, started out with a 14lb flathead at about 2:00 in the morning, next fishi was a whopper, 45.5" long and 32.5" girth, ended the evening with a 7 lb flathead as well, all fish were caught on live gills on circle hooks, The big one bottomed Xsmokin Joes 50lb. Scale so i used th I.G.F.A. fish calculator and it said 54lbs, we also lost a channel that was 15lbs plus. I had a blast would like to say thanks to joe for taking me out with him, Great guy to fish with....Joe will be posting pics on here soon so hang in there, Good fishing to all.....Mickey.....

    Here's the pics, I am holding Mickey's fish cause Mickey is a bigger guy and it doesn't look as big as in the pic he is holding it. I think I put in the other post that the one was 17 pounds but I was tired when I put that there and got my numbers mixed up.

    Oh yeah I almost forgot the most important part, ALL of these fish were released in the morning after the pictures...C.P.R is a MUST with those giant cats. Fillets are only good once
