    My partner H20 Mellon and myself had a decent year this year, much better than last year :D The year started off with a bang in may, really slowed down in the summer..I was working alot of 7 day weeks in the fall so we only got out a few times in september and oct...Almost all of our flatheads were caught on fresh cut shad..I will share a few pics with you, hope I dont bore you to much.

    nice looking fish flathunter, i haven't had a terrible year as well. last winter was one of our wettest winters in the last 100 years down here in AZ. i think the fishing will improve next year. just got to find something to keep me busy until then.

    Man! Those big flats sure make a great picture. Thanks. I was jigging for walleye today and got a couple of nice flats. The larger one was 12 lbs and a lot of fun on the walleye rig that I was using. Hope to see him again in a few years. Hannibal Mike

    my flathead hunting improved a lot over the year mostly because of the BOC and all the people on here that will help a guy out. I started out fishing for them in june, kind of a late start. Before june my biggest was only 10lbs that I caught when I was twelve(a long time ago). But since then I am almost to the 40# mark. I just want to thank all the helpfull people on here for all there help, and for making my fishing season better. My bluecat fishing also improved , now I have to break the 52# mark and that will be tough.

    Bore me/us, are you kidding? I think that probably most everyone on here loves the pictures as much as anything else about this site. It is great to see a guy's success and not just hear about it.

    Thanks for posting them. And, keep 'em coming when you can.
