1. Flathead Catfish

 

What a challenge! Spent the majority of the week carp fishing. Caught a bunch 8 pounds and under, one was 1/4" under the 26" mark. Time was running down so we had to go for the big guns. Saturday night a thunderstorm came through and I thought that would turn the bite off. A few hours later things picked up. Had a missed bite and then my bell was ringing again, same rod. Set into a heavy weight moving slowly. After a short fight a mud cat was in the net. A really nice sight and relief! Hard to get a photo showing the fish and yard stick together in the dark but we measured 26.5".
