    Well let me start by thanking my friend Chrisblue of Fightin Da Blues Guide Service. He called me last night and ask me to do a little fishing with him today.:big_smile: We were going to fish for Flatheads on a lake that he doesn't talk about much and guess what happened. 20 mins after we got all the rods out. My rod started screaming out drag. After a long fight we were thinking I had a big Flathead.WRONG. I had just layed the smack down on 43.3 lb. BLUE.:big_smile: and had a new PB. Ive added the pic below. We fished several more holes and put 8 more Cats in the boat before we were done.

    WOW WHAT A DAY!!!!
