    The stories you are hearing are just that,stories.Every major resevoir in the U.S.have those same stories told about them.They are the product of bait stores and tackle shops trying to sell larger and more expensive tackle that they don't normally sell much of.But do I believe there are record class blues and flathead in the lower Osage river and Lake Ozark? The answer is most definently,There are blues that would match or break or even shatter the existing state and world record.And flathead that would break the state record.So don't believe every thing you hear.I recomend you to hire a guide that knows where to find the big cat's if that is what you want to persue.It will be money well spent on your part.I hope you take my advise,spend your money wisely.:smile2:
