Took the canoe out again tonight and missed 2 (flatheads?) right at dark. Manage to catch this flathead just after dark. It beats my best flathead by 19 pounds. The bass pro spring scale showed it weighed 24.5 pounds. Caught it on live bait in the shallow water. Water temp was 74 degrees. My canoe is 44 inches wide so I think this fish is 39-40 inches long. This was the best I could do with the pictures since I was by my self.
