    There has been a dozen posts on how big of a flathead you have caught, now what is thesmallest one?
    I was bait fishing and caught one under 6 inches, feisty little rascal.:confused2: What is yours.

    I caught one about 8" long fishing for perch on Grand Lake. Tossed him in the bait bucket and hollered for my brother-in-law to come look at him. When I turned around a game warden was standing there. Figered I had a ticket because flatheads have to be 20". Luckly he just looked at the fish and let me turn him lose. I was not going to keep him but I had him in my bucket, so the wardens will give you a break.

    I'm such an awesome flat hunter that the smallest I have ever caught was #20.:roll_eyes:

    OK enough BS. I have caught them small enough that I didn't even know I had one on he hook until I reeled in. I have also had a couple streaks of bad luck, and was happy that I was at least catching something.
