    I fish the Safe Harbor Dar every weekend. Were you fishing from shore or on the bridge. I fish from the bridge, been catching nice channels 5 to 7 lb range. We are starting to pick up some nice flatheads. A buddy of mine caught a 13 1/2 lb flathead on sunday morning on chicken liver. It looks like the flatheads are adapting to the water here. I myself picked up a 5 lb flathead on Saturday on chicken liver also. My biggest this year so far was 15 1/2 lbs on a large shinner.

    Mark, I've noticed that the channel cats from the juniata and susquehanna rivers seem to have broader heads than the channels I've been catching in the Alleghenny.:confused2: ibohunter there are better days ahead.
