Default Anyone here fish for Flatheads. Maybe around KS?

Just wondered if anyone out there had any good flathead stories to share. We fish the rivers in S.C. Kansas and regularly catch 20-40 pounders. Just looking for other success stories.

Now your talking my type of fishing. I don' t catch many, but I did get my personal best last summer. Have always fished from shore, but bought a new boat this year. Hope to have more luck.

Dog gone thats a fine one. We dont see too many quite that big in my area but i have started taking ventures a little farther from home every year. MAYBE this summer I can top 40# (My best).

Just wishing to go further east one day and fish the Mississippi or Ohio but cant complain because the World Record did come from KANSAS!!!!!![:-] Go KS.

FYI: 123 lbs, Elk City Resivoir in SE Ks (Caught with Zebco 33 while fishing for Crappie, WOW)

Well, I' m not that small, but not that big either. The fish was 49" long. We didn' t have a scale that would weight it, but we guessed between 55 & 60 lbs.
