@ayeFeesh,

Actually I am. I don't show up too early or too late, bring a good pot luck dish, don't monopolize the conversation, stay versed on a variety of subjects, help the host/hostess when possible, volunteer to stay to help clean up, and I know when to leave. Your sarcastic assumption is wrong. Why do you feel the need to perpetuate the personal attacks????

True!

True!

Cool, we used to catch them from time to time when we lived in Alaska.

Hit the river with daughter, neighbor, and his 6 yr old son.  We managed 8 cats.  All released.  Fished about 630 until 815.  All fish on Sonny's blood.  No takers on hot dog concoction. . Told the little guy we had 1 major rule....only kids get to reel in the fish.  They were very good about following the rule!

I bet you're a thrill to have at social gatherings WIUPGamer....


I think people are debating two different things here. Are there possibly flatheads in this stretch of river? Sure. A measurable population? No.  


I've caught burbot here before, and those supposedly don't exist here either....

I wouldn't doubt there's flatheads. Just because they're rare doesn't mean they don't exist.

There's a lake up north my grandpa has been fishing since he was young. My dad grew up fishing it. And I've fished it my entire life. Two years ago I caught a bullhead on that lake. No one that I've spoken to has heard of them being in that lake. Guy at the bait shop didn't know. It's not even listed on the DNR website.

Strange things happen, I believe it.

Buddy of mine caught a 21in flathead while jigging for walleye on lake dubay fishing off shore by the tiki bar when I was at school in point.  Have another buddy that lives in that area and has caught a few flattys while trolling for walleyes on dubay.

Not everyone has a phone that takes pictures under all conditions. Plus... Who the fffk are you that I have to prove anything to you???  If you don't want to believe ....DON"T! 

Troll me all you want. I know what I caught. I know what others have said they caught.(And I'm man enough to take a person at their word - no skin off my nose if they are mistaken.) I've seen pics in the past.  My goodness.... some of you think a mighty lot of yourselves. It's like you small group of ...people think you are the final authority on all things fish related in this area.

Do, think, feel, believe whatever you want.....................

P.S. Crawdaddy - I can respect that!!  FYI I've spoken with half a dozen people whom have grown up in this area and that fish (ages 32 - 60+) and everyone of them has emphatically stated there are Flatheads in the SP area on the wisconsin River.....  I've only lived here for 16 years and this is the first I've seen personally... But just because I haven't seen something doesn't make me doubt it, especially if it is something that is very possible. I'm man enough to admit I have not seen all there is to see in this world.  Tight lines man!!!

Partly Sunny

AIR TEMP
86° - 90° F

Fished about 45 minutes this afternoon.  Sonny's dip.  Caught 3. 17 to 22" channel cats.  Had a nice 1 break off.  Missed a bunch of hits.  Almost too hot to fish.  I'll admit I'm wrong on the flatheads.  Just never seen one in the area myself and don't know anyone who has.
