    Hey Jay, congrats on the Flatty!! Hope you are enjoying that high water up in Cape :eek:oooh:

    Did you catch him in the same place you were catching all those last year? How did your winter go? Catch any good blues?

    A 25 & 26 (blues) are the best I've done this year so far but I'm about ready to get on some good flatty's!!

    Thanks guys.
    Hey Shane,,no it wasn't the same place, it was about 15 miles the other direction.I have fished that same place this year, but no flatheads so far from there
    I laid off this winter as i always do,, when the flatheads quit biteing, i wait till spring

    Congrats on your first flathead of the year. The water temps here in central Ohio are in the mid to high 50's. The problem now is the weather. It was in the high 70's on Tuesday, low in the 20's, high in the 40's rest of the week.
