I was reading an article which mentioned keeping 10-20# flatheads taken using setline methods for the table. I know legally taken fish are the property of the fisherman who caught them, and to each his own. However, I'm very stongly against the idea of keeping any flatheads above several lbs. It's true I fish mainly for the fun, and usually don't keep any... but where do people think those 25-30 lb flatheads come from. And besides, those pcb and mercury contaminants concentrate in the larger, older fish. It makes me wonder who they're feeding those fish to... Shawn I could see a case for keeping bigger fish where introduced non-native flathead populations have moved in and taken over, though.
