I catch alot of flatheads ,besides hook an line I run bank poles ,off my land .Its a very effective way to catch catfish , its also very expensive , if you have to buy bait , which I do . I have never caught a flathead on any thing but live bait . I have heard some guys do ,but they are smaller fish . My biggest flathead to date is 33lbs , My brother caught a 47 in. 48lb'er. We do alot of catch and tag [DNR] and release . Wi . DNR just held state wide meetings on many wildlife concerns , stricter regulation on flatheads was a major issue. We shouldf know soon the outcome of these meetings .
Its a pleasure hearing from fellow Wisconsonites who like to fish jay jay
both of the questions had more yes votes........i have the numbers in an email but i'm to lazy to go get it lol....but both did well, we'll see what the DNR does now...as long as the closed season for the flats is catch and release only (which i believe it's supposed to be)....i'll be a happy camper
