Yesterday evening, ncangler user swampin' and I hopped in the canoe with some live (and dead) bream and launched into the cape fear river outside of Erwin nc In search of some flatheads. We ended up getting out there later than we expected, and as it got dark we wedged the canoe in some rocks at the lower end of a set of falls. We each threw out a couple of lines downstream of us, and sat on the rocks in wait of some action. Our lines with live bream and 2 oz slip rigged sinkers did little but get snagged in the plentiful rocks in this stretch of the river, but our free lined half bream brought about some excitement. Before long, I had something take my line out, but like a dummie, I attempted to set the circle hook I had in my bait, and yanked the bait out of the assailant's mouth. Right as dark hit, Cody and I were talking, and I noticed his bait caster rod start to do the dance, and it was fish on! Brought in a 2 and a half foot long flathead that weighed in right at 10 pounds. We were both very exited to catch exactly what we were targeting. Hoping to find some actual holes later this week so we can hook something with size to pull us back to the put-in! Feel free to comment with any suggestions, thanks for reading.
