And it looks like there will be an early entry on the KOTC competition huh. Congrats on the monster Chris. I can only hope to get into a fish like that some day. This summer I plan to start going for some kitties, haven't really done it yet but I am looking forward to it.

You are very lucky to get that pig in the boat, with that strong current. Nice fish dude.

Thanks guys!

I'm still a bit excited to say the least.

My personal best flathead cat is 48lbs, which I caught in June 2006. I fished the rest of the summer of '06 and all of the summer of '07 with a 32 pounder being the biggest I caught in that entire timeframe. To have this big 47lb hit right away this year felt oh so good!

We say it time and time again, its about putting in the time and paying your dues.

I've got photos of the fish I'll post later as well but its back out on the river tonight for the 3rd straight day. Went to sleep at 4:30am Saturday morning, 4:00am this morning, not sure what will happen tonight. Hope the weather holds off and allows us to be out. Darren & I put 8 flatheads in the boat between those 2 nights, probably missed the hooksets on another dozen easy.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
