    The yellow cat in my avatar I am guessing that it was in the 40 lb range, he was 42 inches long!

    Made it last year with a 47 lb. flathead. We also caught a 21 lb & a 30 lb flathead at the same time out of the same hole the 47 lb came from last year. Now that was fun.

    Last year was tough fishing here the lake was way to full to launch until late July, even so managed one 53 pound flathead and one 43 pound blue. lots of teens and small one too. I am hoping this year will be better.

    I've caught several blues over 40, but never a flathead. I would really like to land a 40 flatty though! Maybe this year!

    I have caught 2 . one that was 42 and 1 that was 51. I probably had several hundred that I am sure that would have weighted over 40 had I caught them after they grew up. Darn fiddlers.

    My PB is 51 blue and I have a 38 lb Flathead. I am hoping to break both of those this year.
