      I love fishing for the big ones set all day or night just to hear that rod go off

      It was a day catch, right around noon. I've caught all my decent cats between 10am and 2pm. I've caught some nice Northern Pikes at the same spot but they ...more hit around 5-7pm. And yes it was an amazing feeling and an awesome fight.

      Was that a day or night catch. Don't matter that's a good one. Some fish all their lives just to feel that on the end of that rod

  2. 49", 52lb flathead. Best catch of the year so far but still going for bigger.


Gave up fishing for about 7 years after getting back from Iraq and now I'm back full swing. Only go for monster fish but I catch a little bit ...more of everything. Hoping to be able to start getting in some tournaments again soon.
