    Just curious, has any one caught any flatheads with tags??? Mo. Dept. of Conservation has tagged alot of flatheads in our rivers for research and I haven't heard anything.

    Hey Cuz,

    I caught a 5lb flathead this summer. It was worth 25 dollars, I got the check but haven't recieved the info. on this fish yet. It paid for half of my entry fees in a tournament the next weekend.

    I caught a 7lbs flathead and a 14lbs bluecat on the missouri river about 4 years ago. The flathead was released below alton lock and dam and i caught it below Labidie power plant. The bluecat was tagged in Jefferson city and caught it in that same area as the flathead. The flathead had a metal tag on its gill and the blue was tagged behind the dorsal fin.

    caught a 4# flattie on the Missouri up by Keyetsville, the wound was still bleeding where they put the tag in, I gave the fish to the guy I was with so I don't know anything about where and when.
