Got my first flathead

Discussion in 'Northwest Ohio Fishing Reports' started by mojo, Sep 26, 2004.

  1. Well i put my kayak in the maumee at farnsworth this afternoon. mostly just paddling around but was trolling the whole time and made some casts. was out for almost 3 hours with a big fat skunk (it was pretty muddy for bass and i never bothered to try for cats). i get back to the ramp and grab my ultralight just to make a cast around the dock with a jig. something blackish brown zips out and takes it. i thought for sure it was a bullhead but when i pull it out i see its a 15 inch flathead..my first one ever. i was hoping my first would at least be over 10 lbs but i'll take what i can get. another species tacked on the belt for me. i think the guy cruising by thought it a little odd i was taking pictures of a tiny little cat.....lol
