The LEWT Tournament got canceled yesterday due to the wind. Decided to hit Tappan and stay at my buddies cabin on the lake. Trolled for about an hour, and got what I thought was a snag at first. 45 minutes later, I boated this 43.2 pound flathead with the help of another boater passing by. He jumped in my boat, and netted it for me. Had five boats hovering next to me watching the fun. Got it on 12 pound line, SR5 clown Shad Rap. Had the pleasure of meeting Buddy Punk from the site while the fight was on.

Hetfieldinn,

That was great watching you land that, I wish my brother and I had gotten there sooner to watch the whole fight. Here are a few of the pictures we took while watching you land this great Flathead!






Good going on your catch and it was great to meet you!

How long was your catfish? Last year I was lucky enough to land a 38 inch flathead at Tappan. I did not have a scale and so couldn't get an accurate weight. Maybe if I could know the length of your catfish...?

I have no idea what the length of the fish was. I wanted to get it back in the water, and I didn't have a tape measure with me.
