Thanks for the Kudos guys.

Just wanted to thank Aanderud for being on the ball and getting some great pictures and video for me. With a fish like that, good pictures (to me) are priceless.

The best part was that it was caught in a spot that I didn't even think we'd be fishing at. It was on the way back and we thought we'd stop and try it as I'd caught a couple fish there previously.

Unreal! Absolutely Unreal!

Wish I could say I've caught a 52lb, 54lb, and a 57lb in my life. wink

And I do believe that put the nail in the coffin of the KOTC Flathead division.

Very nice catch Darren, couldn't have come to a better person for all you do for the sport of Catfishing, you deserve it. Looks like even though you have suffered a few clickless nights, your boat seems to have the deffinate edge in the flathead catching prowess!!!!! Congrats on a fabulous catch and hats off to you too Aanderud for taking the photo's under pressure and pure excitement. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE VIDEO!

Darren - Timing is everything. You were supposed to get that fish on Saturday night. I take that back. You get a fish like that whenever you can - GREAT CATCH!! Congratulations. Looks like you move to the top of the leader board and will probably stay there.

Darren, super nice fish! That's the biggest flathead I've ever seen, and probably pushing up against maybe 1 or 2 sturgeon and a sailfish as the biggest fish I've ever touched. Wow, that a fun night. I couldn't believe how big that fish was, and I think it hit the right line. You've put in more hours than probably anyone, and put probably 3 people on 40 pount plus fish this year alone. Must be karma smile

Congrats buddy, you deserved to catch that one! Now, it's off to find a 60! Funny thing about these fish, there's always a new challenge!

    • can someone answer my this/ bow fishing isnt open yet is it??????????? i believe it maybe from or on rivers but not lakes???????   i could of swore i seen a rig out potentially bowfishing last nite. this boat was lit up like no tomorrow along the shoreline of an open water lake.........well techniqially a bake water of a river!!!!!!
    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible.
