    Id be willing to bet that some of the "blue guys" are jealous of your flathead.:wink:
    You see more blues than flatheads because there are more of them and they are more willing to bite. Fishin for flatheads drives alot of people crazy.:smile2: Too few fish for so many hours.
    Well worth the wait.:cool2:

    yea its strange, im in a bad area for banking blues,im going to load up on bait in 2 weeks and hit the missisipie ,for blues agian, this time, ill learn to use a mono leader, and cast out farther and i might camp until i land at least a 30 pounder,i dought theres many boc guys thats jelouse of my flats, i mean, i got a 30 42 and a 50, and a25 and alot of 15s in the last 12 months,but looking at other avatars it puts me to shame lol:smile2:but i gues thats part of the thrill the drive to get one

    Jacob you need to lower your standars dude! You cant just hope to go out and get a 50lb blue your first year of fishing for them, give it a couple years and several babies before you get your hopes up like that! You have only caught like 2-3 blues so far in your life. Just like the flatheads, how many years and babies did it take you to get one even over 20lbs?

    Lower your standards, your setting yourself up for dissapointment!

    Slik,
    If I could get an 80lb flathead 15 minutes from my house I wouldn't care if I never caught another blue...W
