    Last night, my younger boy, Jordan was using my Crappie rod and beemoths to catch Bluegills when he hooked into something that obviously wasn't a Bluegill!

    And after a ten minute battle, he finally landed this nice 8 pound Flathead.

    Quite a thrill for him!

    That's about the complete opposite of my luck. I go to catch catfish, and end up catching a gill. Not much more disappointing than catching a gill with a hook that is almost as big as the fish.:big_smile:
