    My fishin' partner and I got 3 last Friday. 20", 25", 30.5". Nothing huge, but after nothing but a couple medium channels for a month, pretty exciting.

    Nothing real big but I caught 3 between 6 1/2 and 9 pounds a week ago ... I plan on hitting that spot the next three nights now that the weather and river has settled down (We broke 2 record lows this week by 10 degrees and I'm not ready to sit in a boat in the dark in 45 degree temps yet)

    I've caught a ton of 6-10 pound flatties this year, more flatheads in one season than I can ever remember, as many or more flatheads as channels ... And by total weight it's not even close since I've only caught a handful below 5 pounds
