This week's Archers Alley "Catch of the Week" comes to us from Dylan & Harry Jiles, of Sabina!
Dylan hooked into this estimated 46" 40-pound flathead on Clinton Lake recently while crappie fishing!! After an hour and a half fight, they pulled it in!
"Crappie fishing was pretty slow but Dylan ended our day with this beast. Caught it on a 1/16 oz jig, 6 lb line on a 7' crappie pole. 1 hour & 20 minutes later, after chasing it across the lake for over 1/2 mile, we got it in the boat. 46" long and 40 lbs. Released to be caught again. A collective effort by
Jay Jewell & me to control the boat, great rod work from Dylan and a lot of luck."
Tune into Central Illinois Outdoors this weekend to hear Dylan & Harry tell the epic story of this great catch!
