Kevin Wensink is one lucky first-time angler! He shares this story with us: "The fish is a flathead catfish that I caught on the Fox River in Cary, Illinois in July of 2007. It measured 36" and 21.5 lbs. I had acquired a 12 foot aluminum boat that summer and my buddy and I decided to try for flathead catfish as we had never gone fishing for them before. We went out about 10 PM and around midnight my slip bobber which had a 12" sucker minnow beneath it started to race downstream. I set the hook and battled the fish for approximately 20 minutes. Every time I got it close to the boat it would immediately take off and strip 50 yards of line from the reel. When it was finally played out, my friend used a rapala lipper to secure it, we measured and weighed it then released it back in to the river unharmed. My friend and I went out fishing for flatheads several times after that fish but have yet to catch another one. Beginners luck!"Outdoor Life Online Editor
