    me and my brother vlparrish aka vern went out tonite in my boat and set up on the spots i chose lol i was captian he said i found a spot the other day that looked good 31ft right off the barge lane i had marked good fish there so we tried it , turned out productive i caught three flatheads 8# 12# 1.5# and vern caught a channel 5# and a blue 7# then the gar came i guess cause we couldnt hook up . so we decided to move up river to another spot that i wanted to try , vern said hed fished it before with no luck but i insisted so we ancored . after a few minutes vern caught another channel 5# and i caught a blue 20# . then vern being the guy he is washed his knife and cut up a cantelope lol we ate it on the river man was it sweet we both had sticky hands and faces lmao he took it from his garden when i picked him up . after awhile of sitting in the same spot vern had a couple hits i had none then at 11:30 i hung my biggest flathead ever it weighed 50# real nice vern has a pic of it in the photo section on here under vl parrish pics

    Hello,

    That is one nice flatty, congrats.

    I also caught my personal best flathead about a month ago hear in MN where I live. It weighed in at 45lbs and measured 53inches. The amazing thing is that I managed to land it on 10 lb test line, with a 6ft medium action rod and a small number 2 octupus hook. I will try to upload a photo to the site.


    Take Care Everyone!

    Sincerly,
    Your Fellow Fisherman Kevin
