    Was you with him ? They grow quick on the way home back from the water :wink: Hang in there , keep line wet , just browsing this board should go to show ya you could double that 35# on any given trip in any given conditions . It will be a sweet adrenaline rush when you land it , good luck !!

    I had just got a 10lb blue and he was up on the rod and it just taped it and then took off the funny think was that i had to use 150lb brad on a capercorn baitcaster and it was locked dawn and pulling drag like hell.Should i just cast little cut brem on that hole.

    I know how you feel. In May I caught a fish and my buddy was sleeping. It was his B-day and it I knew it was big so I woke him up and told him to take the rod. The flathead ended up being #3 shy of a state record at #45.
