    Turner's Outdoors is reporting that there was a 72 pound flathead taken from the Colorado River just below Blythe, Ca. this past week. Anyone hear or know anything about it?

    I posted that Turners report last Thursday but for some reason it was deleted twice. I read another report that gave the name of the guy that caught it and remember he was from Ca. but I don't recall where it was posted.
    A bunch of Boc members will be on the river in the Blythe area this week so there should be some good reports next week.

    I read the dude who landed it was from banning.Anyone see a pic of that monster yet?I was there last week but my biggest flat for 4 nights was only 15lbs.Slow for me,but hopefully the boc gathering will see some big ones.

    that guy should check fish closer. it was tagged. know it was cause my name was on it. :angry: glad to hear the big ones are stating to bite again. luey and i will be at blythe sat morning early to find our spot. never fished river there, so will be a adventure for us. double as he's never camped. i'm sure between myself and all the old salts there, he will be a old hand at this by sunday.
