    THere is this big time Flathead fisherman at the lake I fish at. I spoke to him several times last year. I talked with him this morning and he showed my a fishing magazine with a 2 or 3 page article about himself. The article was saying how he may be one of the best flathead fisherman around.. Apparently he s pretty popular cause a google search turned up quite a few hits. He is at my lake every weekend in the summer. Any one know him? Seems to be a really nice guy. I'm going to have to see if he will let me go out with him to pick his brain.

    Be sure to listen to any advice he gives ya. He tends to know a thing or two about them flatheads. He has been in numerous magazine articles over the years. As far as being one of the best flathead fishermen around, I would definitely agree to that.

    I have only spoken with him online, but he is well-known around the MWCD lakes particularly.

    I too have spoken with him quite a bit online. He and his partner are VERY! knowledgeable Flat chasers as proven by the multitude of LARGE Flatheads he catches every season..
    He has written some very good articles on flatheads you should be able to find on the net as well...
