I might offend some people with this post. All the talk on here recently of where the better flathead fishing is it really doesnt matter to me. I know the guys out east are really hammering some fish this year. Me and my buds have had spurts like this too. Also alot of talk of where the next state record will come from. I would really like to see someone hit 50 pounds but I dont think it will happen hope I am wrong.You know the old state record held for what 20 years there is a reason for this the flatheads here in PA dont have a long growing season in my opinion. And if there are fish that big they are hiding near the dams waiting for divers to come swimming by:smile2::smile2:.Me myself have had a terrible year fishing but have been with people that have caught huge ones this year thats the way it goes some time.You guys have something special out east but the west has some monsters too. I had one fish this year almost pull me into the river have been flathead fishing for years and have never had that happen. Whenever the state record is broken I hope it is someone here from the BOC!
