    decided to fish the tusc river last night for the first time for flatties with my wife renee. fished from around 6 to 8:45, i had one good run on a 6 inch creek chub and caught a FAT 13 inch smallie, LOL. NICE FISH but wasnt what i was looking for. had another good run around 7:30 and caught my first flattie of the year, it weighed 9 lbs and was 28 inches long. NICE START to the 2006 FLATTIE SEASON !!! i know it wasn't huge by some people's standards but a NICE FISH for me. we had a few other picky bites but nothing to get excited about, i was kinda shocked cause i caught this fish in a new area of the tusc and the water was pretty shallow. I know i'll be getting back out tonight !!!

    I know how you feel. Getting that 1st Flathead of the season is great. I know that Flathunter and I were happy last week after catchign our first flatheads of '06. Oh wait a second..... Thats right Flathunter DID NOT catch a flathead last week. That slipped my mind ;)

    Anyways good job Brian. Let shope the next will 19# instead if 9, then 29# after the 19#, then lets hope you follow that up w/ a nice big 39# fall Flathead!

    Thanks for all of the positive comments guys !! I'm hoping to break the 25 lb mark this year on the Tuscarawas River.

    Runs through Stark, Tusc, and into Coshocton counties combining with the Walhonding river(I think) to make the Muskingum River
