    for me its been all blues this year up in the markland pool on the ohio river. most years i catch more bigger flats but for some reason this year its been the blues that have dominated my big fish category.

    I haven't had a whole lotta of time for fishin this summer. So far though...a 15lb flathead caught on the Fox River up in Illinois, a 12lb channel caught out of the lake in Brown County where my grandma lives, and a couple of brute carp that were 18lbs out of White River. Everything else has been pretty slow, can't seem to buy a bite on the smallies out of the river this year. Last year I CPR'd 2 20" smallies out of the White.

    Biggest this year was a 53.3lb flathead. From the tailwaters of salamonie lake. A few flatheads in the 20's from the huntington area of the wabash. Channel's have been nice sized from salamonie this year also, using cut shad and whole shad.

    not counting my lake here.... I've only caught a couple 20 somethings that were my biggest, and I caught both those on the same night.... hopefully that changes here pretty quick, I'm gettin' bummed about it.

    51 pound flathead caught in early June just before the big flood on the white river west fork.
