Default My first bighead

Got him along with a few other fishies in the Mississippi floodwater last night. I think he was anorexic though. Man was that fish skinny. He weighed 16 lbs, but he should have weighed about 25 if he was healthy. Ended up with 4 grassies (1 15 lber) 1 common and the skinny bighead.

Nice job John!
When I was looking at the text you sent, I figured it would weight about 25lbs if it had some food.

Don't forget to add 'em to the fish count.

Bigheads are getting skinnier everywhere. Too many silvers. Silvers are getting skinnier too, but the bigheads can't compete with those silvers. Clouds of silver carp fry in the Illinois now. It is unreal.
