    I put 3 flats on the bank today, no big ones but decent fish of 22-lbs 18-lbs and 17-lbs..All came on fresh cut shad and I was using 8/0 circle hooks...Good way to start the year.

    Thank you for the pictures thats a nice looking flathead you caught there looks like it could put up one heck of a fight, glad to hear you caught you one, did you catch it on a bluegill. Thanks again for sharing how you did.

    Well done Jack! Congrats on the catches, all decent flatties!! But i'm kinda wondering with the problems you've had in the past on early flatheads, did you catch them or did your little fisherman there with you catch them??? :smile2:
