I have just started fishing for flatheads and caught my personal best on rod and reel.
I had a heck of a time getting him to the bank. My line broke as I was trying to pull him over some grass so that I could get him out of the water.
I wish my wife would have got a picture of my when that happened. I don't think I have ever dropped a rod and jumped into the water so fast in my life!
Anyway here is a picture of my new and soon to be old PB (11.5 lbs)
