Went out fishing this past weekend for cats and bowfin on the Cape Fear river. The bowfin were hitting like crazy! I was hoping for a few channels or a blue, but low and behold I ended up catching a 2 or 3lb flathead! What a monster, I know! But he hit my cat rod which I had set up with a 4/0 circle hook which I had three impaled 3" shiners on. I haven't seen a flathead since last November, so I'm not complaining one bit!
