My wife got her first ever flathead today. Man was she excited. Last year was the first year that she had ever gone fishin and she did pretty good. She caught quite a few channels with her biggest at 7 lbs. She got hooked but wanted to get a flathead.lol. So we went to a little river spot that I have been fishin since I was 5 years old for a couple of hours.I didnt catch any but still had a great time. She was so excited she started jumpin up and down.:smile2: I was proud of her. She done everything herself, tied all the knots, baited it up and threw it out.Not even 2 minutes later the rod was bent over and he was runnin with it. He put up a respectable fight, one that she will never forget.It weighed almost six pounds and was caught on nightcrawlers. We were also fishing with cut shad but had no takers on that. We were mainly targeting channels. The funny thing is that I havent even caught a flathead yet this year.
