Mount Horeb Wisconsin

I was out night fishing for cats with my girlfriend. Our usual spot wasn't producing so we moved up river to a new spot that we had scouted out earlier, but had never fished before. About 30 minutes later, the battle was on with the biggest fish I have ever caught. I wrestled with the monster fish for about 20 minutes speculating on what could possibly be at the other end of the line putting up such an awesome fight! The sight of the huge flat head surfacing next to the boat in the moon lit water is something I'll never forget!
