    I caught several ops yesterday at the river but this is the only one that I kept. The others were small and full of eggs. I thought this one was a male because he was so skinny but it turned out to be a female with just a handful of eggs in it. It weighed 30 pounds. I caught it against a steep bank with slow moving water on a 6/0 circle hook. This is the largest I have caught out of the river and about the 3rd largest op that I have caught ever.

    Nice cat, Brian. Sounds like the flatheads are getting ready to spawn down there.

    What were you using for bait?? Nice fish by the way!! Those flatties are the best looking cats out there IMO.

    Whenever you want. I got some lines out at the river and we can go bait 'em up and check 'em whenever.

    Caught about 15 nice blue cats today. The water is falling out of the river and we put some lines across some slews and caught the fish as they were leaving the backwater.
