I saw some pictures today from a guy at work who was snagging flathead at lake darling last weekend. The DNR is lowering the lake to work on the dam and is allowing people to take the fish any way they can. He had one that weighed in at 57 pounds and said that there was a 70 - 80 pound flattie stuck in the mud that no one could get to. It is pretty sad that the Iowa DNR is doing this. It wasn't 3 years ago that they were shocking the Skunk river for flathead and putting them in lake darling. They are not even atempting to remove the flatheads form darling. This is comming from the guy that shared the photos with me.
