    Hey!
    I pulled a 20lb flathead out of the Eagle Creek Reservoir, just north of the Lafayette Road bridge this afternoon! I'll get the pic on here tomorrow. I was just hoping to catch a channel or two, and what a surprise! It was really scraped up, must have been spawning. It hit a small goldfish under a float in the main channel.

    I finally figured out how to get a picture on here, so here it is. There are flatheads in Eagle Creek!

    Nice flathead...I've heard of some nice ones coming out of there as well as good channels and blues...I really need to get out that way.

    Great catch! I live 10 minutes away from the reservoir but have never gone after those cats. I'm usually off to the White River. Maybe I can hitch a ride some time and learn from the King of Eagle Creek!

    Nice cat Eric. I have been to Eagle Creek 3 times in the last two weeks but all I caught was one small channel about 10 inches. Give me a holla sometime so we can get together and go fishing out there. How is your brother doing?

    I know what you're saying about Eagle Creek, I have fished it so much and haven't caught nearly what I should have. I've fished it hard for the past 5 years and have only caught two flatties. Good to hear from you Joe! My brother is just fine, thanks for asking. I'll give you a call.
