    Everytime I read the story about that 139lb flathead my heart starts pumping. I can't imagine a 139lb flathead, I guess people just don't realize how big they actually get. Thanks for the link,great reading.

    I believe that if a fella fishes the arkansas river enough he will find them, I also believe that the arkansas holds fish as big as those in the Mississippi but probably just not as many, When I get my boat finished ( which is real soon) I will be on the river alot. But will need to find the stretch of water that hasnt been fished out by the commercial boys. May be hard to do but I believe. :D . Mac

    :confused: I agree....it's tuff to find spots that are free of those tangle nets...I see lot's of them around scranton and dardnelle.....There are a lot less of them though when the current is going....I know a couple of spots they can't set them though due to tons of brush :)

    Sam, Have you fished around New Blain? I saw some pictures of some big flats from our cable man. He lives around there.
