    Last night I caught my first flathead catfish here in East TN while fishing from the bank. It was 3 ft. long and 30 lbs. Not only is this my first flathead, it's also my new personal best (my old P.B. was a 9 # channel cat). I truly owe it all to the B.O.C. because this site is where I learned how to catfish. Thanks to all the brothers and sisters who share their knowledge and info. here, so that folks like myself can learn to fish. The picture on my avatar is the picture of the fish I caught. This fish was returned safely back into it's enviroment and C.P.R. was practiced.
