This was one of my favorite trips of the year. Trent Heard came down by himself for this one. He had 2 people cancel on him at the last minute, but he was dead set on catching some monster catfish! Since it was just him, I decided to go to a part of the river that I knew had some BIG fish. After the first 2 holes that held some 15-20 pound fish, that I used to teach him my technique of noodling....he was ready for the big ones. We skipped over several holes I knew of, in search of the MONSTERS. It didnt take long....before I knew it, Trent was pulling out a 40 pound Flathead! It was a monster fish, but it was in no way as mean as the last fish of the day. We ran down river to a hole i was saving for last, which was under an old sea wall. Trent went down to check the hole....5 seconds later I heard the WHOOMP WHOOMP!! Trent came back up with a 30 pound Flathead that tried to kill him when he stuck his hand in his home. The fish pulled his glove off and gave Trent some bloody knuckles and some memories that he will never forget!!
