    Finally, I caught my first flathead of the year. It weighed 12# and I will have a pic on here soon. It wasnt huge, but it felt good to get me a flathead.I was using live bluegills and chubs, but he took nightcrawlers near an old stump. I was fishing my uncle's pond at his farm in Crocket, KY(Morgan County). He has never stocked it since he has lived there, but there is some quality fish in the pond. The fish was Caught-Photo-Released so it can grow and be caught another day. He showed me a pic of a 35 # that they put in there about 7 years ago. I hope to hook into that next time I visit them!

    Nothing shabby at all. I fished a tournement this past saturday on the Ohio River and a 10 pound flathead won big fish (unfornunately it wasn't mine, lol)

    Thats a nice catch on your first flat of the year. They only get bigger from this point on.

    Here is the pic, I figured I would use it as my avatar, because it is a current pic of me and my first flat of the year.
