22# Flathead

All of these Flatheads were caught out of one hole on the Ohio River on 8-26-99, in 55 feet of water, on live bait. It was cold 52 degrees air temp. with a bunch of wind on the river but we had current and the fish were hungry. This is just only one time since May that I have had current on the river, these cats were stuck tight to concrete cover on the river bottom, Frank VanWinkle and I were fishing together and we pulled a total of 9 Flatheads off of this structure. I got lucky or was holding my mouth right these were the big ones and they ended up on the end of my poles.

Larry's 22# Flathead taken below the Meldahal Dam this summer.

    Opie's 15# Channel Cat one of the largest Channels we saw caught in 1999, he caught this at one of the tournaments and was inched out of big fish honors by a couple of 16# Flatheads.
