    Congrats Jim,
    I am with you, i did not target or catch flatheads until last year. Being new to flathead areas and with the help of local catfish1 brothers I was able to get comfortable with the differences in channel cats versus flatheads. Nothing beats catfishing! Good Luck through the season.

    good job bro.....I've seen some of your post from the winter and know how good it must feel catchin your first flatheads.......but I wouldn't let that overshadow that channel cat, that's a big channel......i haven't looked but it's probably Penn HOF material?
