I finally breat the 40 mark now you guys are looking for fiftys . about the dream thing I had woke up twice after I caught the big cat in franklin because of a dream that it got loose and I had to check and I'm still dreaming of a 50 plus.

Do you think they make a replica of a cat that big?

Yes, they do in fact. Google all of these terms and click on the first link (I'm sure there are others as well), then scroll down to their flathead.

Saw an article a couple months ago about these guys, apparently their replicas look great in real life. Here's a sample.

Less talk, more picts.

The replica is nice, but the mouth looks odd. Looks like it is laughing, he must have just spotted me above the water.

There has been 7 or 8 that I know of caught this year, most if not all of the pictures can be found right here in this forum, or the KOTC Photo Gallery.

Speaking of Relicas, I saw one at the boat show this year of the World Record Flat (123lbs or something like that).....now that was impressive.

    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.

    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
