We set out 22 noodles Friday in hopes of catching some nice bluecats. After getting them out we went up in a cove were we had been catching a few crappie. We only caught a few keeper crappie but I caught this big flathead in 1-2 ft. of water on a minnow with 4lb test and a little 4ft rod. When he first hit I thought "this aint no crappie". I figured it was big hybrid or black bass. He took drag several times and finally was able to get him to the surface without breaking the line or my rod. When his head came up I thought "Holy crap". Good thing we had a net.
No sure how much he weighed. He was about 3 feet long. Caught several nice eating size blues and Cdoz35 caught the nice hybrid on a minnow as well.
