    I finally caught a respectable flathead tonight, thank god:big_smile: Right around 30-lbs..I caught the fish using a ugly stik tiger rod medium action, Abu 6500 reel, 20-lb berkly big game line, My hook was a gamagatsu 8/0 "J" style hook, and I had a live gold fish out for bait..Was fishing the scioto river here in Ohio, and the fish was released...It's my biggest this year, I did not thank I was gonna catch a nice flathead this year.
