    This is a fish my uncle caught and never got it weighed due to him thinking the Ohio State record was over 100 lbs. He caught it in the Ohio river and released this fish to fight another day. Do any of think this fish could have given the state record a run for it money?

    its hard to judge weight from a picture... id say it was around 40 - 50 lbs from the looks of it :confused2: its really hard to tell.

    I don't know what your state record is but I doubt it would be a contender unless your state record is fairly small as flatheads go. Thats a nice fish but not a contender by any means in my opinion.

    Looks like a very nice fish, but not near any record size.

    I'd say between 50 and 60...likely not a record sized fish though. Someday maybe now that he let it go! :big_smile:

    Was in the range I was thinking also around 60 plus pounds. A very nice looking fish indeed for sure. Awesome catch!

    I would say between 50 and 60 pounds. About 20 pounds shy of the record.
