    What would you rather do, catch one BIG flathead in a night, say like 60lbs, or catch SEVERAL mid size fish, say 5 20 pounders in a night??

    I would prefer to catch several fish in the 15 to 20 pound range, than one big one.........at least I think. lol

    I have never caught a 60# fish, but have caught several 20#'s.

    I would take the 60# personal best for me.

    i'll take what ever bites the hook. sure the big fish will give you dreams from here on out but you could always turn to your buddy and say hey rember that night we caught all those fish.

    If I had my druthers I'd rather catch 3 - 5 pounders to fill the freezer with meat. I fish for meat not necessarily to release them.

    Either would be a personal best. But I would have to say the 60#er. You can boast about that for the rest of your life. And I could get a great pic for an avatar to get the guys off my back.

    HMMMMM....thats a tough one, i would love to hook into a 60 lber, but i also love having action packed nights where they bite real good..So either one would be fine with me i think

    All I want is one flathead in my life over 50 lbs. After that I don't care what I catch. I spose I would be happy just catching flatheads of whatever size.

    Don't really matter to me as long as its peaceful and the bugs are not bitting.

    The adrenaline of a large fish.....but the enjoyment/excitment of many fish. This question is not fair.

    I would rather catch one really big Flathead than a 100 smaller ones. I recently landed a 67.2 lb Flathead on 20 lb trilene and I had the fight of my life. I cant wait to catch another biggun!!!!!!! I'm spoiled now:eek:oooh:
