    I was wanting to see if everyone would be willing to post where some rumored record channels are? Prolly not, but I will be the first. In an issue of infisherman they spoke with a game warden in Kansas about some southern lakes, the one that caught my attn. was a 36# channel they netted in late 2008, maybe someone will catch it and set a new record this year. The place believe it or not Osage State Lake.

    Thanks and good luck all!!

    I'm guessing most of the lakes in Kansas harbor record channels and even flathead. Just because they ain't nettet don't mean they ain't there:wink:

    My bet is that a record flathead is lurking in Lacygne, plenty of BIG shad there and warm water year round to support year round eating/activity. Chris

    I fish both Redmond and Osage alot and judging from some of the fish I caught I really do think they both could hold state records...

    I love the John Redmond trophy talk....one week from today Steve and I are hitting the Neosho above JR hard for 5 days.

    Hopefully the weather cooperates and the fish start to find a pattern and we can get us a few bigguns :big_smile:

    Redmond would be a good place to start looking for a state record channel! Sure wish I lived closer. The log jam up in the Neosho River is where I've seen the largest channels I've ever seen, but my buddies had better luck catching them. Saw a couple of fish that were over 20lbs., but nothing over 30. I bet there's one or 2 in there though.

    Last I heard....The existing KS channel cat record is in one of the 100+ strip pit lakes of the "Mined Land" State Park. I've been out of the loop for a while, maybe it has changed. Yes I know which lake, and no I ain't tellin' until after I fish there.lol
    LaCygne gets my vote for Flathead.

    Rick , long time no see. I know which pit it is too, and I also know the night Rick B. caught that 36, he also got a 29. I dont doubt for a second, that there is a bigger one in there, but I know where a 38 was caught and wasnt certified. It just happens to be where me and Shelby are going on our pig hunt tomorrow for 5 days. :wink:
