    Well i have finally broke the 20lbs. mark that i have been after for so long. i actually blew it out of the water. went out last night and caught some gills, baited up my hooks with gill heads, caught two flats 7 and 10 lbs. then the fun begins. i hooked into what i thought was a mack truck doing about 70mph. fought him for about 10 minutes, finally got him to shore and about died where i stood. this thing was a monster (to me anyway). got the scale out a weighed him.........31lbs Flathead!!!!!!!! Blew me away. i couldnt have asked for a better fish. this just goes to shpw that some big fish come from some little water. the only thing i could have asked for besides this was a stupid camera that works. mine is still broken. oh well i know what really happened and thats all that matters. Just wanted to thank everyone on this site for all of their help and advice. i started using it as soon as i got it and it paid off big time. Thanks again and now i am after the 40lbs mark. Hope you guys can help with that too. i guess now its time to upgrade hooks though. after i got this fish in and got the hook out of his mouth it was useless, almost straight.
