      like it was really caught on a zebco!!!!anyone who has been on flatheads for any lenth of time would know better than that

      Im thinking that the rod would snap also, a Zebco couldnt reel in the 123lb. dead weight, much less if it were putting up any kinda fight. Just dont think the gear ratio could support a Flathead like that. Thats kinda hard to swallow. Id have to see it to be believe. BUT.....if it is indeed true...I give ya props!

      Just looked it up in the 2007 IGFA World Record Book. It's true - the actual weight recorded is 123lbs 0 oz. What a fish!

      hey that is a nice fish when did you catch it and where
    • jamminbassplayer
      It says right at the top, elk city resevoir, in kansas. :big_smile:hey, I'm in Kansas! I've passed elk city a time or two (I think, it's easy to miss!) but I don't know where the resevoir is, I'll have to plan a fishing trip there sometime ;)

      Alot of debate on the validity of this fish. It stinks to me. But until proven otherwise or broken, it stands.
