    here is a little story about my first big flattie..I brought the fish home so that i could show my son's my catch since they where not with me that nite. I put the fish in a 90 gal pond i keep my baitfish in and when morning came around my boy's wanted to see the fish. I go out and start to reach into the water to pull the fish out and it comes up off the bottom and bite's my hand and out of shock i jerk my hand out of the flatties mouth and the mouth plates cut my hands and scared them. That is why the second fish was put into the tub so i could get it out easyer...haha just a funny story...hope you all enjoy and keep your lines in the water....
