I know there are at least a few in there. I caught a smaller one last year that went 21 inches. A friend of mine said he caught at 30 incher. I would imagine there are some bigger ones in there somewhere.

Ive never caught or seen a flathead caught out of Berlin. According to the dnr they've never been stocked in Berlin. Not saying they're not in there, but Id say its a pretty rare occurance when one is caught. Lots of channel cats, more than youd ever want to catch. I can promise you that............

Thanks everyone, I didn't think there were any stocked, but you alway have a few people that might bring one over from a close lake that does have them. Doing a cat tourney tonight and just want to know if I should bother using large live bait. How about channel cats, Any over 12lbs in there?

Channel Cats will take live bait too. Bigger the bait, bigger the fish! I caught one on a 5" long live crayfish once. It was only a 2lber though.
