    First gotta say we all had a blast this weekend at the lake. It was my kids' first time camping. Fished all night with very little action til about 2am. I am minding my pole and here Garren bellowing 100 yards down the bank "Matt bring the camera!!!" I will let him tell that story but I decided to sneak back to a feeder about 3 and got this guy, 12.5 lb and a 5 pounder. Nice not to get skunked cause I thought thats what I was gettin! It was good to see you again Garren and congrats on your new r&r flatty PB! Gotta do it again soon!!

    All fish cpr'ed!:wink:

    Here's that flattie I caught last night, only fish for me on the trip. I got him on the gut pack of a huge shad I netted earlier in the day under a catbobber. He weighted 24lbs, and I forgot to get a length on him. He's my PB for rod and reel. He faught like a champ, there's nothing like getting to do battle with a nice fish like that. Matt, thanks to you and your family for all of the help and hospitality down there, we'll have to do it again.
