    Went by myself last weekend to Gibbons Creek and landed me a big ol Flatty.
    Caught her with small live perch on 6-8 lb mono. I hooked into it around 1am and landed in boat 45 minutes later. She weighed in at just under 30 lbs.

    sweet, heck ya!!!!!!!!! I caught a new PB last night ( mumbles 6 lb flathead) LOL. I hooked something BIG last week and almost lost a rod tip. went to about 90 deg. and the drag was peeling right when I grabed the rod the sand spike popped out and then........ I lost tension:sad2: Important lessen on that one I lightened the drag on all my rods a bunch. Oh well thats why they dont call it catching. A big congarads.
