Catch of a lifetime

Floyd Winstead

Floyd Winstead has been fishing in the Floodway for most of his life but made the catch of a lifetime recently. It was not the size of the fish but how it was caught that made the catch so unusual.

"If I had not had a witness, I would not have even bothered to tell the story," Winstead said.

He and his wife Charlene were fishing when he caught the 25 pound flathead on a jig pole on a 10 pound test line. It took them about 20 minutes to pull it in.
