    I targeted flatheads for the first time saturday night. My first line out within five minutes had one in the boat. Caught him in about 5 foot of water around 9:00 p.m. That was the only cat we caught all night. It didn't mater to me I CAUGHT MY FIRST FLATHEAD!! Can't wait untill the next time out.:big_smile:

    He was about 4 or 5 pounds. I caught him in Clarks Hill Lake just north of Thomson Ga. I will post a pic of the monster later.

    Way to go Snappy. If you're anything like the rest of us, you're gonna be hooked on catfishin'!!!
    I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. :big_smile:

    Nice going Patrick! That was a nice first flat, and the good news is the best is yet to come. Just wait till you jerk the lips of a 40-50 pounder !! I live in Waycross, and have made the trip up to Clarks Hill a couple of times to fill a cooler with fat slab crappie. You are lucky to live so close to a fine fishing lake!! Take care, and good fishin', Jack.
