    Congrats Mark on the nice Flatties! Thanks for posting the photos! I'm finally going to get out on my boat tomorrow evening. I was up the mountains all this weekend at my buddies camp for our annual Trout fishing weekend on Tionesta Ck. We done pretty well but I'm ready for some Flathead fishing!

    Went out tonight with a dozen creek chubs caught 3 channels and a nice 17.5 pound flathead. This was a strange flathead i was watching my lines when i noticed the one line slack up a little and took a couple of clicks of the baitrunner this happened for a couple of minutes thought it was a small channel again disengaged the baitrunner and could feel little twitches so i set the hook and this flathead went crazy actually gave up a pretty good fight took longer to bring this one in than a thirty pounder a couple of nights ago.

    Mark went out last night also, first went to the locks in Charleroi to find the first gate wide open could not fish. Than went to a nother spot and got chased by a goose with young ones. Finaly went a third spot and got the first one for the year

    Nice fish Theron feels good to get the first flathead doesn't it. Going to take a day or two off fishing late and waking up early makes for a hard day but the bite has been pretty good the last week.
