Yep its true it took me a little while but I finally landed my first flat head catfish. It measured up just shy of 24 not huge but a good start I think. Only bite of the night and well worth the wait!! I have learned a lot the last few weeks chasing this guy down. I had to order some hooks from Cabelas because I cant find anything big enough around here. I also learned shortly after this little guy took my gill that I am going to need to get some new line. The 20lb test I have on my big poles just isnt going to cut it and the med poles I have braid on I am not sure could handle a big flatty. Wish I had a pic to share but I was by myself so I didnt bother bringing the camera. I think I will bring it anyway next time so I can at least get the fish alone. I also may have to get a scale. Long story short Im hooked now. Lucky guy that I am I dont have to work for the time being so I will be fishing every minute my wife will let me out of the house. I cant stop now!!!!
