    Went out last night to flam city and fished near mouth of creek by the boat dock again( No cops this time:roll_eyes:) First cought some shad with net (even though it was my first time throwing it) it wasnt hard because the shad were plentiful.

    After tying off to bank about 9:00pm my pole bent like an horse shoe and reeled in a 10 Lb blue. It was the biggest catfish i had ever caught.

    My pole bent like a horse shoe again about 1 hr later. I fought this fish for at least 5 min. on 17lb mono. It was a 15.5 lb channel.

    I broke my personel best on the Blue and the Channel within 2 hours.( which wasnt hard considering i have only cought dinks on stink and wallmart dried shad) What a difference fresh bait makes( a world to me.)

    I was ready to throw in the towel on catfishing this year if i didnt catch anything like last year. IM HOOKED NOW !!!!!!:smile2:

    The picture attached is the channel 15.5 lbs
