    In case anyone wants to stop in , Cabela's has a 71 lb flathead in the aquarium that was caught last week. Not sure how long it will be there.

    I think it's still ticked off, haven't seen it move yet or turn around.

    From What I Understand they won't keep that Bad Boy in the tank to long,because when He Gets Hungry He'll clean that tank OUT,and be setting on the bottom of the tank looking Content.LOL J.D.

    Kinda makes ya wonder what all the other fish think when they realize they are a potential meal for something they can't get more than about 15 feet away from.

    Believe it or not, that fish was caught by my buddy's brother out of the Mississippi near Clarkson. He caught that one and another on bank poles using goldfish!

    Catfish Granny I was there again today.

    There are two monster flatheads and and two monster Blue Cats. The 75lb blue and 71lb flattie are both there still.

    The flatheads were both pretty active today which was unusual. They are usually sulking on the bottom. The blues are always swimming.

    Worth a trip if you aren't too far away, plus there is a lot of cool stuff to shop for. LOL
