    Last night I took my youngest boy, Jordan, who's 6 years old, to White River in Indianapolis and he caught his first ever Flathead catfish (7lbs.) that he reeled-in on his own!
    Later on, I caught a 15lbs. fish which is my best one so far this year.

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Both were caught on live sunfish hooked thru the lips on a 4/0 circle hook with about an 18", or so, leader.

    I guess based on the ratio of fisherman vs. fish size, Jordan beat me this time!

    Nice flatheads. Bet he's hooked now. I've still yet to get a flathead out of the river this year, but it's generally been up too high to get to my honey holes. Oh well, still catching some nice channels though.
