    Not a big guy only 3 pounds but its a flathead :D . Also caught a few lil channels to go with him and all of em caught on chicken livers


    Found a nice fishing hole back in a creek near a marina . The one houseboat on the end where i was fishing feeds the fish every night . There are some pretty big fish that live back there , now if only i could catch one

    Beau, congratulations on the catch. Not everyone catches a flathead. They are something, aren't they?

    Lake waco

    I was just holding my pole and then all of a sudden the thing just doubles over right there and the fight was on . He fought for a bit but i got him in pretty quickly . I was hoping grandma was going to take a bite out of the lil 4 inch bluegill i had rigged up on my big pole but no takers

    I would've stayed there all night if i hadnt run outta bait but i know where im going next time i fish at night

    Congratulations on your first flathead. They should be turning on in the next few weeks then you will catch a bigger one if you stay on the water.

    Congrats on that catch TXboy! I've heard of a lake in Waco mentioned in a couple conversations with my buddies, called Lighting House Lake or something like that. Ever fished it?? Is it any good for the kittys?
