    Tom do you relize that people who handgrab those flats are ruining the spawning cycle for them.

    Thats a nice one Tom. I may have had several this year that big but got off. I guess Highrock can produce big flats, you just have to get through the number of small ones first.

    Looks like you need to drag that pontoon boat out and sink it for structure. The flats would love it.
