    I'm new here and new to fishing for cats. I caught my first ever flathead last night. It weighed 11lbs. Caught it on a 7" sucker. The pic is in my avatar.

    Thanks, I've been fishing for walleye for the last 3 years and this year I decided to venture into something different. I'm glad I did because it was fun catching something that big. I'm going back out today at sunset with some bluegill to try my luck again.

    The Wabash, we have miles upon miles of riverfront. I've been skipping from spot to spot to see what kind of results I get.

    I've been going out every night for a few hours. The water is starting to come down pretty quick though so the fishing is starting to slow down a little.
