    Called me here about a hour ago and said there is a man at J.C Landing that just broke the Georgia State record Flathead Catfish with a 83 Pounder. There will be Pictures and further information to come on this as Jesup City managers are getting Photos and the story of the fish for the BOC. I am sure Paul will update you here soon on this fish.

    The old State record was 67 pounds from the same area. this one kind of kicked its butt, No If Paul would of got it he would of been closing the Bunny contest and laughing at all of us !! He wish it was him.

    From what I am understanding this guy who got the fish is a BOC Member, which is pretty cool.

    I can't wait to here his story. It was caught on rod and reel too.

    The Altamaha is a sweet river with a lot of nice flatties in it. I can't wait to see the pics and info on it.

    There was a guy who caught a flattie in the 80lb range back a couple years ago from there on a limb line but never had it registered. It is good to hear that someone is actually going to have it recorded.

    He must have waded to his fishing hole because the river is very low. Me and my little girl went today in some spots you can walk across.
