    went out for a spur of the moment fishing trip today just a little south of the chevy damn got there at 1 pm and not even five minutes after putting a bluegill out on the bottom, came up with a 17 # flatty.Its not a monster but its the biggest flatty that i have caught. also caught one round 4 # and missed a couple of runs but all in all it was a good day.

    Congrats on the nice flattie and personal best! You gotta start out somewhere, and that is a respectable fish !!!!!! Alot of people go their lifetime and never catch a fish like that. Definetely worth being proud of! thanks for sharing...rollo
