    Today me and my friend fat fish 55 went out huntin for the flatheads. There it was, i got a bite and started to reel it in, it felt like a monster fish but then i realized it was just in some heavy cover and it was hard to pull it out. I got it up to the boat and it was a nice 6 lb flathead my first of the year, and my biggest flathead.

    nice flathead, a 6# fish is a great way to start out i think.

    Nice looking flathead, congrats on your biggest ever. Those fish are smart and really know how to use cover and current to their advantage which always makes for a fun fight.
