So i reach in and get the biggest sunfish in my bucket ( i only had 1 ) so i hooked him or her on and flung it out to this big old logjam.....waiting and waiting drinking and drinking i hear this click and then another click and then silence ok then i hear a CRACK ( me opening a beer ) then there was on more click and then a SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEMMMMMMM ok fish on it was me versus the fish we fought id gain and then he would gain it went on for 10 minutes and then all of the sudden whoosh here come my hook and sinker flying past my head.......

    GIT-R-DONE master skywalker!

    Remember...it is a major violation of man law to catch a big flathead and NOT take and post pictures!

    Drink a beer for me and catch that monster. I'll be at a family reunion all weekend.:angry:

    However by the time you were to drive the 30 miles one way from Des Moines to get them you might as well save the $8 bucks in gas and buy em! I have 2 or 3 spots that always seem to work. Just got to be willing to go from bridge to bridge on the gravel roads until you find your honey hole.
