    Good info Griz. If you ever has a chance to, stop by the lost valley hatchery here in Warsaw. Theres a wealth of info to be learned at the hatchery and it also has a fish tank with about every species in the state in it. Also they have a blue and a flathead in there around 50-60 pounds. Pretty cool place to spend some time with the family.

    Very interesting. I've always heard flatheads are very difficult to breed in captivity because they won't lay eggs or tend the nest. Probably why the hormone injection is required and looks like they have everything else worked out mechanically.
