    caught my personal best channel last night at about 1am. fishin in about 25 feet of water, one of the most shallow spots on this lake, with a bluegill head. i was reelin in one of my poles and i hear a thud so i look over to see my rod goin over the boat so i grab it and fought this tough girl in. she put up a nice fight. then when we netted her i went to pick up my first pole to finish reeling it in and its nowhere to be found. another fish pulled it in i guess cuz this one didnt even go around that line. lol it was only a 20 dollar combo from walmart and i kno where it is so ill get it back :) had a head from a hand sized bluegill on a 6/0 gama octopus hook. 20 pound mono on a 10 foot spinning rig. weight was 15.2 pounds. beats my old PB by 3.2 pounds. good luck fishin everyone im in gear now that ive caught my biggest one this year. cant wait for flatheads on the bash tho;)

    Great Job! Now you have me ready to go. I think its still a little too cold here in Colorado, but I have all my gear ready. Until the water warms I will keep hammering those trout.

    Congrats on the new PB. Sorry you lost the rod and reel. You might want to tie a lead line to your equip, when fishing at night.
