    Heres some pics of the two great Flatheads I caught in the Platte River near Sharp's Station. It looks like they are done spawning cause i was using bluegill and bullheads as bait. Enjoy everyone. it took me a total of 2 and a half hours landing them in the boat. :big_smile: it was well worth it though!!!

    What a day! I am glad to see a BOC member lay down the hammer! Were you upriver from Sharps? Boat or Bank? I caught a flattie about the size of my perch from a boat at Platte Falls, but now YOU HAVE ME ANXIOUS to go out again! Look for me in a gray tacoma and be sure to say hi!
