    If there were only 2 of you fishing and all 11 of those are flatheads one of you is over your limit by a fish.

    If it was just you and and only the first 7 fish I can see clearly are flats you're over your daily limit by 2.

    Easy there. The fish closest to the boat are not flathead. Congrats on a good trip. Wish I were there. Keep the reports coming.

    I didn't judge anybody, I said "if" in both sentences. Thanks for the clarification. You'd be surprised what people will post on the internet:smile2:

    Man you have had a good week Matt!!!

    Are you fishing the back of a hole/front of a riffle, or jumping around to several places?

    Great fish!!!
