    I changed my avator to put this flathead I caught about 5 hours ago. he weighed 48 pounds. I didnt think I was going to get him in the boat he was a smart fish couldnt hardly keep him off bottom. Then when I got him off bottom he was rippin line and tryin to go under the boat several times. You know sometimes when you catch a big fish it doesnt mean he fights like it but this one did. caught him at a new hole with a very fresh cut skipjack. I was fishin in 34 feet of water but casting into a drop off to 42 feet with a 54 foot hole close. I pulled in three fish tonight and missed a couple others. I pulled in the 48 pounder the avator and a 15# flathead when I still had the 48 pounder in the net and then a couple hours later I pulled in a 23# blue they were still bitin when I left. Pretty good night.
