The state record is 43 lbs 9 oz caught in 1985. Have seen most the pics of 50, 60, aand 70 lb flatheads on the internet. So why is it so difficult to beat that record??? Do they not get big in PA???? Do people eat em??? Has any of you guys heard of bigger fish that never got weighed???? I have seen 35lbers here in the Schuykill, there must be bigger fish somewhere maybe not here in eastern PA but in western PA?????
