Boat=few thousand, probably close to $800 in rods reels etc. , $65 gas in truck and boat, about $750 in electronics, first ever flathead that weighed 45lbs, PRICELESS!! Here's the story. First of the day was a half pound blue followed by a 7 pound channel, follwed by a 14, 11, 6.5, 9, 13, 11, and a 12 pound blue. And this flathead. That was fun. All the fish were caught in an area that I'd never fished before. I have always wondered how the flatheads fight and was not disappointed. All were caught in 35-50ft. I had a nice lively creek chub on a good ole circle hook just waiting on ole flatty. Never got a bite on it! Was cuaght on cut bait. Last Tuesday caught 12 fish all blues totaled 117lbs. Largest one 27lbs.
