    Mine is a little 3# channel. Caught it on a 150+ yard drift down the river from the bank. Caught the little guy on a 1/2 slice of bacon under a slip float rig. :smile2:

    Then we drove to a new "better" spot. Once we got there we met a little girl that just finished catching a 5# channel...:sad2:

    45# Flathead off of 4'' cut eel, in two foot of water at 3am last year in July, out of Fayetteville stretch. Cattn Jeep when you and me go I guarantee you'll break your PB.
