    Congrats on the flathead Will. Nice fish :big_smile:. Jack, 250 runs the whole lenth of the lake. I live about 9 miles away from Tappan. My PB from that lake is 47lb 5oz. It is loaded with nice channel cats also. I have caught some nice ones over 12lb. Tappan has some really nice flathead :wink:.
