    That would be the world record flathead of 123lbs. There are pictures of much bigger cats taken before the record keeping system that's in place now, though.

    I think I heard or read somewhere that it was caught in southeast Kansas somewhere. Not sure on a specific water though. It might have been Elk resevior or something like that... not sure why, but that just pops in my mind for some reason.
