    I was fishing around a large rock and caught one nice little 7 pounder and had my line broke by the 2nd fish.

    Congrats on your first Flathead;

    I still remember the first one I caught years ago. They are my favorite target and best to eat. Keep up the good work. Nice fish!!



    Now get a Biggun;

    Sorry it took me so long to respond...I've been fishing LOL (caught some nice crappie this morning). I was using about 3 inch perch on a large slip cork fishing at 7 foot (the water is about 8-10 ft deep) when I caught the flathead. The 2nd fish took me by surprise and almost took my pole with it as a souvenir. I was fishing with 30 lb test (spider wire) so I hat to speculate and its size....but I'm afraid it was a kodak moment fish...and I had the camera ready....but this fish was tougher than me and my gear. I would have turned it back anyway. I never keep one over 5-7 pounds anyway.

    Glad to hear you caught your first flat. Where was you fishing. I'm over here in ottawa county and it has been a bit slow.
