    I also want to thank my buddy Roger, who was there and netted the fish for me, and even helped me get the fish up for a pick, I thought my bad back might give way but I survived..Roger lost a nice flat tonight.

    It was an awesome flattie for sure!! Measured out to 46". Jack also forgot to mention his first flat of the evening weighed in at 21 lbs. And he also lost another nice one about a half hr after landing this 55. Was a great night and i'm glad i was there for it!!

    I got to throw this in...As most of you know I release all my flatheads..I hope they spawn and reproduce more flatheads for me and others who fish my waters can catch.

    I have been fortunate the last couple years and have caught some good fish, and if I would have kept those fish, it surley would have put a hurtin on the fishery.

    I dont haul them around to show others, no trips to the bait store to show them off...I can show them off here!

    I treat them with care, take a quick picture, and back in the water they go.
