    Yesterday headed up river, spent a couple hours catching some catfish candy. After setting up for those nasty flatheads, I caught 1 mid thirtys and then a 50.4lber. The females are really packin weight with the spawn coming, HUGE stomachs. Thats the 2nd flat over 50 in my boat in a week, screamnreels caught the 1st

    Heck of a fish. I'm surprised 67 lbs or whatever it is has stood for so long. I have no doubt there's bigger fish out there. Hope you all get him....if I don't first through absolute blind dumb luck.:wink:
