    The new In-Fisherman Annual Carfish Guide is out and an article most of us will find interesting is about the East Coast Tidal Rivers that have been stocked, mostly since 1980 with Blues and Flatheads .... The bad part about it is they have completely eradicated a bunch of other spieces of fish. States like North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia are trying to figure out how to get rid of the Flats and Blues. In one river in Georgia (I think it was) the state has electro shocked and removed over 24,000 pounds of Flatheads .... Really interesting reading ....... Garry- :cool2:

    The thing I laughed about when reading the article about the flatheads in the coastal rivers and southern lakes was all of these guys around the state that have been buying these flatheads to stock in their pay lakes ... how long before the flatheads eat everything else in the lake and they end up with 4 or 5 big flatheads in their lakes and nothing else ........ If enough people tell this to the pay lake owners they will stop buying the flatheads from the law breakers selling them and hopefully they will then stop lining and jugging for them.......
