hit the GMR today from 12pm till about 6pm with fellow BOC member Chubbahead. started off fishing a 16ft hole where i thought the flatheads would be gathering for the winter. after about 2 hours we had nothing to show for and Phil busted out the channel cat outfit and started cutting up live bait. he managed i think 6 channels and i was starting to wonder about the spot holding any Flatties. got bored and decided to borrow his Saugeye pole and head upstream a ways when all of a sudden one of my flattie poles took off that i had baited with a Madtom catfish. caught a 16lb flattie that had an unusually "shoveled head" :wink:. after about 15 min i decided to take that saugeye pole and head upstream again. was casting a 3/8 ounce jighead with a white twister tail in 6-8ft of water, and on my third cast i thought i got snagged but it turned out to be a really BIG fish! fought it for about 10 seconds and it got off. on the second cast i hooked into yet another monster! it seemed a little smaller and after about 20 seconds it got off as well. was debating heading back down and getting my bigger poles and some cut bait but thought "one more time". yes, i hooked another big cat on a twister-tail! this time i set the hook really good. fought it for quite a while and then called phil on his cell phone to come up there with a scale and a camera. after about a 20 min fight on a 6'6 med action rod and 10lb line i subdued the beast. it weighed 28lb exactly. took a few pics and released him. we came back with our heavier gear thinking they were stacked in there thick but never managed another, even tried the twister again too. we did however manage 4 more channels, including about an 8lb channel Phil caught dragging cut sucker along the bottom. ...and the "Shovel-Head".
