Catfish, Flathead Graceclaw

Photo: 
Species: 
Catfish, Flathead
Location: 
MN River
Date Caught: 
Saturday, June 24, 2017
Notes: 
I was packed up and ready to leave for the night. As I reached down to pick up the rod to reel it in, the line started clicking off the reel... 25x14. Not massive, but not a dink for my first. Freshwater Standard Species #50!

Flathead have a tendency to do that, just as you are getting ready to leave they bite. That is a decent size one for your first one too

This catch checks off one of my 2017 goals, though I have an asterisk on it - I want a 10#+ flattie before the end of the year! New goal...after Muskie.
