    Here we go again with not catching many fish on the Wabash but catching really good quality picture takers. This flat is my biggest fish ever and I have no idea what he weighs but I will go out on a limb and say he is for sure over 60. He had a huge fish in his belly as it was like a rock and big as you can see in the pics. Very healthy fish with no marks scars or parisites. He pulled like a frieght train and thank god for my friend Danny as I would not have landed him in the boat without his help. When he hit top water at the boat I thought I had caught a SHARK lol. Enjoy the pics as I do and by the way he is back home in the Wabash for some one else too catch.

    Nice catch there Bro, thanks for sharing it with us because for one thing we ALL love to see photos of those "BIGGUN'S" being caught. For another thing, it gives us Support When We Ain't Catching Any Ourselves.:smile2:lol
    But in all seriousness, it would not hurt my feelings one bit to have one that sized on my line! :big_smile:
    Hey, just as a suggestion, you should, if you already have not that is, check out our sponsors for the latest in Serious Catfishing Equipment to help you do even better and a good scale to accurately weight those monsters your catching!
    If your interested go to this address for further information from our "Fearless Leader".

    Fraternally,

    Awsome fish and great job landing it. Excellent pics also, the kind you should frame. Best part after the catch is the release. Takes a big person to let the monsters go free, wish everyone did like you.
