My son sent this article about a guy that noodled the big fish. So boys, they're in there. Most likely in the wider and deeper part of the river.

You'd be surprised at the flathead in that river. Jake and I have seen fish bigger than that. Here's a few we've pulled out. A lot of them in extremely shallow water, less than 2ft. All fish were released

Wow. You make everybody happy by showing that the big ones are in the duper-right under our noses (feet, etc,....). With all the Scott's fertilizer and whatnot in the river, I am glad to see that you still have your skin. I would think that in that shallow water, it would be almost impossible to sneak up on them.

I know exactly where he got that fish. I have seen some big cats there as well cruising past my feet while wading. Big ol cat for sure.
