    sorry if any of you see this thread some where else . but it wasn't showing anything i posted . for like 3 weeks. so i am repeating myself. i finally landed my first one. i was using live blue gills .and was fishing weest carrolton damn in ohio. was unable to get a picture. i droped my camera in the river in the procese . cost me a 300 dollar cell phone . for one 7 pound fish ,lol it was worth it to me . i really dont think i would have ever targeted flatts. if not for this site. i never even knew how to or were to look. just wanted to share

    "Holy cow" Mike, sorry about your phone. If you ask me there is always a price to pay for those fish.lol Sometimes it's a cut finger, or a scraped knee. It might be a riff with your wife! Maybe a broken rod or reel! Shucks, it's all part of the game. Congrats on the first of many.:cool2:

    congrats! I've never caught a flattie, but it would be every bit as worth it at that price for my first one :) :)
