    Well, the water here in western Ky. is finally cooling down. The group met at Energy Lake for our weekly night fishing trip. We got there around 4:00pm and started catching bait for the night. Lilgriz threw the castnet and caught some shad, while Lou and I caught a few bluegill and some large wild shiners. Just before dark we baited up, I had a shad out on the bottom and a gill about 6 foot deep under a float, lilgriz was using a gill and a wild shiner both on the bottom, and Lou rigged up a Kat Bobber set about 2 foot deep with a shiner about 8 inches long. Lou's shiner worked it's way right up to the bank, the Kat Bobber was resting against the riprap then it slowly started to head out. As it got to a little deeper water the float went under. Lou was cooking supper and had to shut the stove off as he headed for his rod he set the hook and the fight started. Lou said he thought it might go 20-25lbs by the way it was pulling but about that time the Flathead figured out he was hooked and this big head came out of the water, shook, and the fight really started. Lou would gain some line and then the Flathead would take it back off. Then the fish came to the bank and started running back and forth along the rocks, Lou managed to keep the line tight and out of the sharp riprap rocks that line the bank. Finally the old boy tired a bit and Lou lead him to the net, I netted him and John and I carried the fish up the rocks. Our Coffey scales weighed the fish at 55.2lbs a new personal best for Lou. We snapped and few pictures and Lou carried the fish down the rocks and released it back into the lake. Here are a couple pictures of Lou and his fish.

    That's how it always happens. You get to doing something else and that's when the rod bends and the line starts peeling off. :smile2:

    Glad Lou got to him and got him in. Congrats to him on the PB and thanks from the rest of us for the release. That's one more big flattie for everybody to enjoy:cool2:
