I'm sure you fellas have caught some big ones over the years, I caught one yesterday on Watts Bar close to 30 lbs dragging a worm around. They pull a little harder than an ol bass.

Flat Heads are predators just like bass and hang at the same spots.Ive also caught some 25 to 30's bass fishing.

Someone posted a picture of a big one just the other day.

Think he was fishing with Kirk.

ditto that, I haven't caught a flathead over 5 lbs, would be more excited over a 30 lb flathead than a 5 or 10 lb large mouthed fish of the lowly sunfish family \:D

Caught one yesterday that would have gone 8-10 lbs on a jig while bass fishing. I usually catch a few a year while bass fishing, a few blues too. I don't really see what all the fuss is about, I would rather catch a 3+ lb smallmouth any day.
