How fast do flatheads grow? Just wondering the age on, say, a 35-40lb flathead

Sample data from the WI DNR on the Winnebago system indicate:

9 year old flathead should be around 30 inches and 14 pounds

14 year old flathead should be around 35 inches and 25 pounds

18 year old flathead should be around 40 inches and 42 pounds

24 year old flathead should be around 45 inches and 50 pounds

Depends on who you ask bud. I have heard anywhere from 15-30 years old for your typical 35-40 lb. Flathead. They are by no means fast growers.
