    After many sleepless and fishless nights the last several years, I finally got a flathead that will make me forget all of those times. A 62lb male flathead. I caught this on rod and reel. I was using big bluegill for bait. After taking several photos, I released this giant back into the water so someone else can catch and enjoy this awesome fish.

    ill tell ya, catchin a brute like that really does make you forget about those other fishless nights and days. and, when its said and done and you caught one like that, i know i myself, would gladly go a while with no bites just to catch one like that again.
