PB Pylodictus

Saturday, August 31, 2019
Catfish, Flathead
Size: 
~50lbs

Definitely wasn't expecting to set the hook into my personal best flathead while drifting curlytails......

 

20 minute fight, safely released. 

 

Had a crowd of 30 people watching the whole fight. Crazy stuff.

What a neat-colored fish! Wish I could have been there to witness that fight - I'm sure it was epic.

Cats on artificials are always a nice surprise, I’ve caught some of my largest specimens that way. Congrats on your PB!

Didn't even think about putting a tape to it, but yeah, 45-50 is probably what it went for length. Definitely a master angler (35") though
