Well I went out fishing at St. Johns Bayou like I normally do 2-3 days during the week after i get done with work. I had been fishing for about 3 hours with limited success 1 drum and 1 gar and lots of bites that i kept missing(probably those dang gar). But at about 7 o'clock (right as I was getting ready to call it and go home I got a good hard bite, I set the hook and was surprised that there was actually something there( I had fed the gar about 2 shad already and only managed to hook one). At first I figured it would be a drum like is has been every other time until I pulled a big ugly head with whiskers outta the water. All said and done a nice 8 pound flathead my first ever flathead and biggest catfish.
