    well i caught my first flathead of 2006 this morning. the water temp was 50 degree. i caught the fish behind badin dam. the skies where overcast. i rode down and checked my wintering hole where the fish had been for last couple of months and nothing there. so i guess they are starting to move up river. i see some of you guys up north are still cold but warmer weather is on the way. thought i would share this with all you flathead fishers waiting on warmer water.hes not a big one but still living proof. maybe we can keep this going as the weather warms. here the pic
