    First off a special thank you to Mike Miller for taking me out on his boat to fish the Ohio river. Went out last night and caught my best flathead of the year a 36 pound monster.Caught the fish on a dead sucker that was on hook for 2 and a half hours.We had a very good night landing about nine flatheads between 5 and ten pounds and a 8 pound channel.Let me add a thank you to the BOC also for without I would never have been able to meet Mike to fish with. Here is some pics.

    Great fish guys, Mike has himself some really good spots. He's been catching some really nice cats there this year. Good luck for the rest of the year.

    Great catch, thanks for sharing, what river pool of the Ohio are you all fishing? Also is this the same area where the Beaver river is?

    Walt,

    that whole area rodchester,bridgewater, monaca, freedom. It extremely good for flatheads.

    I think the name of the pool is dashields but I could be wrong and yes it's where the beaver comes in. The beaver is a very small river and up by the first dam in becomes very shallow and dangerous. My grandfather tour up a prop up there.

    The dashields pool is pretty big and produces some nice looking Flatheads. Eric said that there was a 47lber taken out of the beaver but it was for a tourtament down in WV and he didn't know it was the record and released it.

    Josh

    PS if you have google earth use it to check it out. Go over the pittsburgh area and search for dashields pool
