    I caught my second Flathead this last weekend. Sure was a cute little guy. I CPR'd him so he could grow up a little more. He was 15" long and the minimum keeper size in Texas is 18". I had no idea they were so well camoflaged. Caught him on a limb line on either a small live perch or crawfish. Not sure which because I was using both.

    That sure is a beautiful fish. That's the thing I love most about flatheads is their unique colors.

    Nice camouflage pattern on that flattie. Congrats on your second this year - way to let him grow some! Thanks for sharing.

    That is some unique color it seems like some of the small ones are like that I catch (under 10 pounds) and the larger ones not so much. Thanks for the pic.

    In the manly man world of catfishing this is one exception where you can say "cute little guy" and not get looked at funny by your buddies. Am I right?
