There have been lots of post on here about where the next state record flathead will come from. I will take that a step farther. I am a firm believer that the next state record swims in many of our rivers or lakes. I am not talking the ohio river. But I belive any of our major inland rivers, including the, Muskingum, Scioto, Maumee, probably has a flathead that size swimming there right now. I also belive many of the bigger lakes in the state, including ALL the MWCD lakes has fish of that size right now. I think it's gonna take a bit of luck, and a lot of skill to find the fish, because to survive for that long it has to have some extra smarts, and to be very wary of any thing that does not seem right. Your thoughts? Is the next state record swimming in many of our waters?
