    Me and luckeywade hit the river tonight in search of some late season flatheads. Had trouble getting shad at first so we got a late start. around 5 i caught a small 5 pound flat on a chunk of shad. A few hours later I threw out a big shad head and at 9 my clicker started goin, I picked the rod up and engaged and he dropped it. Seconds later he started of again and when the line got tight I set. It felt like i set in to a log he was massive and fought hard clear to the boat. When we got him in the boat I knew it was a new PB. 48.8#s and was close to 50 inches long. Thanks Randy for the trip and the good time! Ill never forget it!

    Kip, I am so fn happy for you right now I could kiss Tbull lol.
    I'm so glad you stuck it out this year and hooked a MONSTER.
    You lost more big fish this year than any guy has a right to hook into, and still come back in the end with a vengance!
    Great fn job! If I knew how to do the SMILEY FACE you'd get one here. lol

    P.S. I told Loanwizard you take him out flatheading for $500.00

    Nice fish man. I'm glad to see that people are still catching nice flatheads in November. What river did you catch that out of? The Muskingum?
