    This is my first Flathead, exciting to say the least. I caught it on a 4'' bluegill using a 8/0 circle hooked behind the back dorsal fine.

    He gave a couple hard tugs and then nothing. About 45 secs later a few more tugs happened and I had him on.

    He was caught at the same location as the Channel in my avatar.
