    Went out yesterday to fish for flatheads, but didn't find any :angry:, it made it much easier leaving after I landed this beautiful channel.
    Hit a 7" live sucker, 12 feet of water in a side channel.

    Nice one man! It seems like those bigger channel cats have no problem eating a big live bait. That's what I've caught almost all my big channel cats on this year.

    nice catch. even though you didnt get a flattie, at least you didnt get skunked.

    Thanks everyone...I was sick yesterday so this is the first chance I've had to get online since posting.
    And yes the fish was released.
