    Hey brothers and sisters,

    I'm hooked. I caught my first flathead this weekend. He wasn't huge, but what a thing of beauty in a gnarly sort of way. I stepped on a regular bathroom scale with him an he weighed about 9 lbs. The 2 channel cats I caught were pretty chunky also, but I did'nt weigh them. I caught these on limb lines using live perch for bait. They were caught on the Guadalupe River that runs right through the middle of town where I live. It's the first time I have fished in this river and I'll definitely be going back.

    I fried up some of the flathead last night and it was absolutely delicious. My first time to ever eat flathead and I think it might be better than Crappie.

    What a great weekend. I am still smiling from ear to ear. I can't wait to go back and try to catch another one.

    Whoop!,
    Marvin

    I'm happy for you Marvin! Like many others said, it's all downhill now. I bet you lay in bed and think about flatheads, right?
