    No doubt...Hell of a fish. My biggest bighead is 62#...I can't even imagine one over 90#

    I just got off the phone with a guy that just shot a 5'+/70# Gar in his back yard. lol I would love to get on some bighead. Is the Ohio River the closest place for us "stuck in da center of da State" people?

    Chessie, while there are some up in the Ohio section of the Ohio river they are not in large enough numbers to shoot consistently...At least not last yr. Your best bet if you really wanted to shoot some was to go fish the KY Lake/Barkley lake tailwaters...Lotsa bigheads there...The Ohio river on the other side of loiusville has em too but they aren't as consistent there.

    To fish KY Lake or Reelfoot how big of a rig do you need to do it safely?
