    I hope to get a new PB Flathead and Channel Cat! Explore more areas and try new spots on the Allegheny. Meet up and fish with more of my BOC brothers! :cool2:

    What I would really like to do this year is to set Personal bests in all 3 catfish species( Flathead)---( Bluecat)---( Channelcat)..... Also, I am going to target more channelcats while I'm waiting on the Flatheads to bite. I would like to take 1 st....2 nd....3 rd place in the channelcat hall of fame for the state of Kentucky. The Bluecat and Flathead are going to be hard to beat. But the channelcat records are wide open!!!:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    Send down a legal smallmouth in the summer months and you'll be suprised what will try to eat it. Good luck!

    I'm going to try and target the bigger flatheads this year when the big bait becomes available. I also want to beat my PB in the channel and flat category. Get 2 more rods to go with my Penn 209 and Long Beach 60

    Sounds good Tan! :big_smile: I have relatives out near Gettysburg. I've been wanting to pay them a visit. If I make it out their way this year perhaps I'll add an extra day to the trip and keep going to Philly and hit the Skuke with you guys! :cool2:

    i am going to try to up my game for flatties this year and land the monsters i have hooked into the past two years. i would like to fish some more with Jay, Justin, and Mark and a few more BOC members. would also like to get to fish with my fishin' buddy more this year and introduce him to you guys. i also have purchased a G50 Phlueger Contender baitcasting reel that i am bound and determined to learn how to use, and get a new rod for it. also am going to make it a priority to find some new, closer to home baitfishing spots. also need to sit down and figure out how to streamline my stuff so i can haul my stuff more effectively when i head out by myself. and lastly is to find somebody to fix my knee so i can get to some of my spots and fish pain free.

    I want to catch some monster flats. Also, like John says catch some channel cats while flathead fishing. Alot of people say they dont have the patience for flathead fishing but a good trick is when you have the big poles with the big baits flathead fishin take a smaller pole with smaller bait and catch channels why you wait for the flatheads it always works for me and keeps you from getting bored because the flats will make you wait for long periods of time sometimes hours and hours.

    i'd like to get into some 30 and 40# fish this year, last year was way too short and was only able ta get out the last month and a half before cold water hit, also have the boat in the river more this year at different locations, i picked up a "mac's river runner" for my motor so that should help out gettin into some of those low water spots
