I went out fishing with a good buddy of mine tonight. I caught a personal best flathead, a 43.92 lb pig. He nearly doubled my previous personal best flatty. This sucker was a real brute, and he was caught out of a really small local creek (no, I ain't tellin!) on 4 small shad, on an 8/0 gamakatsu octopus circle hook. He took me about 15 minutes to get in, and my buddy Blake jumped in and put the handle on him for me. After some pictures, he was released to fight another day. Anyway, this is the 2nd personal best cat I've got in 8 days. August has sure been good to me this year!!!!
