    S_man and I went out to the muskingum today to try for some flatheads. We didn't catch a lot of fish but I did get my personal best flathead. A 24lb 10oz. beauty. We had a couple of runs but they took us into snags. It may be a few days before I can get the pics up on here. S_man has some pics also, maybe he will post one.

    Congrats to the madcatter, We went out and caught about a dozen 10 inch shad but to use as live bait but they all died enroute to the river so we had to use them dead. I think we would have had better luck with some live ones. Josh I'll get a photo up in a couple of hours.

    That is a sweet fish!! 24 pounds of any catfish is big, so I bet that flattie was a fight!
