Well guys. I finally got a decent sized Flathead. I don't have a scale, but the fish was 37-38 inches long! I couldn't believe it. A buddy of mine and I were fishing a low head dam on the North Coon with various baits. We had a couple gills and cut baits out there, but this monster was caught on the traditional crawler. Later in the day I hit up the Des Moines river and had a monster bite on my 6" gill, althought I think I jump the gun on setting the hook. Oh well. Here on some pics. Thanks for all the advice guys! Oh yeah.. Anyone know how much this fish might weigh? I was thinking in the 25# region? Definitely felt heavier than a 25# dumbell though!
