    This is the only one that I've ever caught and now can't get enough. Caught this one on the Tennessee River by Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant with my 10 year old son and his bud. Don't know what he weighed but it sure was fun.

    This was out of a 20 foot Bullet bass boat.:smile2::smile2::smile2:

    That's awesome way to start out. Hell I don't have one that big under my belt but I'm getting better and better. Were you targeting flatheads or did you catch it while channel fishing ?

    Caught him on an anchored jug right in front of Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant. He was estimated to be around 60#. We sat them out before dark with live bream and let them soak till the next morning before we checked them. Have also caught some good 70 to 80#ers but they weren't flatheads.

    Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. The computer has been down.:eek:oooh:

    didn't read all of the posts, but congrats on a nice flathead, guessing 30-40lbs give or take 5 based strictly on the head size and body I can see
