Went out to the maumee bank fishing with my buddy phil. We used cut shad targeting flatheads. I ran into 3 boc members, 1 while getting bait which for the life of me I can't remember his screen name and later xsmokin joe and randy(impak 209)happend along while we were fishing. I ended up with 1 flat and 2 channels. I got the flat in a strange way. While casting I accidentally went over a tree that was overhanging the water and broke my line off. About 20 minutes later I heard a big splash near the tree. Watching the tree with the spotlight I saw no movement from the line. About a hour after the other guys showed up we heard another splash once again I spotlighted the tree and then I saw some movement from the line. I ran down the bank to the tree ended up getting a handsaw and climbing out and cutting the end of the tree off.With joe's and randy's help I got the line and pulled in a feisty 19 pound flathead. This fish was on my broke off line for at least 2 hours and when I got him in the circle hook fell out of his mouth. Everyone watching was hoping that I was going to fall in the water. It was quite a funny scene! The two channels were in the 8lb range .
