    I have not even caught a flathead yet this year, not had time to get out much.

    I usually do my best anymore post spawn, August is my best month, follwed closely by september, then October.

    I've seen a few caught this year in Ohio, and seen photos on here from other Ohio brothers that have caught fish. The largest channel was 18 pounds. The largest Flathead so far is 44 pounds. The largest blue I've seen posted so far is 34 pounds.

    My biggest this year so far is 35 pounds followed closely by a 28 pounder both from the Muskingum River. Hopefully, I will get a couple big boys soon from the lakes.:wink: rollo

    He's so cute, and just think everything that might try to eat him now will be in trouble from him in a few years:wink:

    Jack (Flathunter) busted a big 51 # (50.13) last night. That's the largest I've heard of this year.
