Went out fishing a couple of weeks ago for flatheads. I had six runs from flats in only 3 hours. 3 of the runs resulted in hook ups, but due to rocks, my braided line just kept getting cut. All 3 fish felt pretty nice. I got fed up and left. Just a few days ago, I couldn't take it anymore. I had to hit that spot again. So, I spooled up with some mono. Within a half hour at the spot I hook into the first fish, but after a couple of minutes the hook comes undone. I was preety happy as this was a step up from the previous week. About an hour later I get another run. I set the hook and the fight is on. After a few minutes, I'm holding my new personal best flathead. 35lbs even!!
