Fatty Catty


Nikki Husko

King of Prussia PA

Catching this monster was awesome!! It was so much fun! Unfortunately, we dont know how much is weights but my husband estmated 40 lbs. I am 5'2" tall and its about as big as me. Is there a way to send another picture? I have one laying on a measure but that only goes up to 30 inches and it hangs over on both sides. We have been fishing the Schuylkill River for years and this is the biggest flathead we've ever seen, let alone catching it! It was so heavy it was hard to hold it up for the picture. Please let me know if you should use this picture and story, thank you!Sincerely,

A serious fisherwoman :o)
