I was reading through the 2006 MA reports this morning and thought I would throw a few things out there for debate. I noticed that all but one or two of the flatheads caught last year were caught on cut bait or something other than live bait. This goes against everything I have ever read or talked about with Tony or Sal or anyone else I respect on the issue. Are these accidental catches or do people actually target them in this manner? Even the biggest fish were caught this way. I have no opinion personally as I have never caught one, I only think I know what I know. On a similar note, if anyone knows anyone in the St. Joseph river area, maybe some CPR discussions would be useful. There were some very LARGE flatheads put in freezers last year. A couple of them would rival the state record this year or next. It seems like if poeple understood the benefits for everyone they might be a little more inclined to let them go and let them grow. JMO On the fish stocking data page of the DNR I noticed several lakes that I had never heard of had large stockings of channels since the 90's. Maybe we could pick a couple of lakes that look good, do some research, and then plan to hit them with a few boats on a saturday or something. We could cover the lake pretty well with a few guys and maybe fine tune a few new fishing holes. It would be fun at the very least.
