    This will be my second night flathead fishing ever. Last Saturday at about 9.30pm I caught a 8Ib. flat on worm. That catfish now resides in a fish tank with two channels and two blue gills.
    I went to springfield lake at noon today and caught plenty of blue gills which i have in a 5gal areated bucket and surprisingly none have died. I'll be fishing the Sangamon near buckhart an mechanicsburg bottoms...Wish me luck, although even if i catch nothing tonight I guarentee i'll be back out tomorrow...
