    Wow Nice catch Keith! I would have went with you but had already scheduled to go to Rose lake. Didn't catch any flatheads of course but caught nine channel cats in the 5-7lb range. We'll get together soon an see what we can catch tho :). Going to the Muskingum this evening an see what I can catch there.

    Good job. I've fished the Hocking a few times. I believe it is one of our "sleeper" streams!!
