I had a tough day gathering bait. I ripped a big hole in my cast net trying to get creek chubs and suckers for bait. Only got 1 creek chub, so I then went to my trusty bluegill spot and it took about 3 hours to get 6 gills, what normally would take only 10 minutes. Got to the Ohio river right before dark and baited up 2 poles with bluegills. The night went on and had the makings of skunk all over it. I checked and repositioned my baits about every 30 minutes with no success after about 4 hours. Finally at about 11pm one of my poles got hammered hard and I set the hook on this nice flatty. I wasnt able to get a weight on this fish (note to self...replace the batteries in scale). LoL! My previous PB is only about 24 pounds, this one felt heavier and looks to be bigger.
