big Flathead catfish (new personal best)
« on: May 24, 2015, 01:14 PM »






this cat was a rollercoaster, he stole an entire rod and reel, which i chased into the water up to my knees -missed- and had to snag the line with another rod, and he ended up breaking  the stringer he was on and got away.

8 lbs 12 oz. more than double my personal best channel cat which was 4 lbs 3 oz. glorious fish, and i would love to do it again, cold and wet and everything.

Nice fish, and a heck of a story too!  I've never caught a flathead...I need to add that to me angling life list of species.

Thanks guys! My brother and i have been fishing together for 50 years. We've caught some nice ones in that time, and we've got pretty good at the photos too. When we tell a fishing story and get the feeling we are not being believed, it's nice to have the proof to back it up. We do get skunked from time to time, but we still enjoy the time out.

  Spring will be here soon, and this year we wont have to wait for miles of ice to clear out of Lake Erie at Buffalo. Should be a good early season for Walleye this year.
