I have been in a major slump this year in the flathead department. I have caught 20 or more between 1-9 lbs and a few 10-19 lbs. I have not been able to break 20 lbs which is unusual for me on the Tusc. Well tonight I can finally feel good about a decent fish. Had to fish in the rain, but it was all worth it. I managed to land a 30 lb flattie measuring 37.5 inches long. Caught on live 6 inch goldfish around 1245 or so. Before anyone jumps the gun on me for the pic, YES it was taken at the house. I live a couple hundred feet from the river and where I caught the fish. I did not take my scale or camera. The pic is not best quality from my cell phone, but it works for me. The fish was released alive and well.
