went down to the river last night to get in some fishing, ended up with about a 5 pound channel on cutbait, a few lost runs and a buddy pulled in about a 3 pound flathead. the real kicker was my buddy goin "hey korey come here, what the beeeeeeeep is this?!" so i go over and take a look..dang, it's a big flathead bearly hangin on by it's last thread right up by the bank. so naturally, i go down there and pick him up and take a look at him and weigh him real quick. he was covered in sores from the spawn and weighed a little over 20 pounds. i tried my best to revive him in the water trying to get a little oxygen goin for him. he swam away half way decent, not sure if he made it though. the spawn could be the only thing that i can think of that may have done this? i figure maybe he beat himself to death, other than the scars from the spawn there wasnt anything else obviously wrong with this fish, actually pretty healthy looking. anyone have any ideas?
