Chez Got One
« on: January 07, 2019, 05:52:43 PM »
So our good friend Chez went out in the fierce winds yesterday 1/6/19 and had a pretty good outing. I started myself but turned around when it started raining. Anyway Chez hit a good spot and got some eyes some channel cats and his first North Branch Flathead. I wished him congrats. He actually has a decent pic of it and the characteristic head and tail shape is plainly visible. I think he will pop in soon and let us know how he caught it.

Thanks for posting the pics Dave.
No secret on catching him Dave.
I used what you have thought me threw the years.
My bait was a golden shiners half I had in the freezer.
I will say this,That fish fough twice as hard as a channel.
I wasent sure it was a flat at first but the more I looked I could see the difference. I am thrilled I landed one :D

Flatheads do have a sleekness and a unique beauty all their own.  8)
The smaller ones are prettier; the larger ones get a little grotesque looking.
The several smaller ones that I have caught on jigs in the upper main stem did give me a tussle too.

I just might try to catch a flathead this year, I am a smallie nut but you can go and set up your spot in daylight then go down at night, build a fire cook whatever you want and soak in some booze. jf7
