    Well I finallt made it out today, and was rewarded with a 38-lb flat.

    I caught it at 3pm, on a tiny piece of fresh cut shad.

    I strarted out with frozen shad and fished 1hr with no hits.

    So I got out my castnet and manged a couple fresh shad, I reeled both rods in and had casted one back out and while I was baiting up my second rod my first one went down..It was great to be back out.

    my back is not 100 percent yet, so I was afraid to pick the fish all the way up for a better pick.

    In fact I pulled something throwing my castnet, and I am laying down recovering, but it was worth it:big_smile:

    finally feeling better...something about that twisting motion of throwing a net sets my back off..I think I could have caught more flats today if I was able to fish longer...maybe next time!

    But I do thank god for the abilty to fish agin after my back surgery.

    If Paul"catfish commando" sees this, I want to let him know this fish was caught near his old stomping grounds of Waverly Ohio.
