First "big" flathead of the year. This one was caught in 6 FOW on a steep bank with lots of structure. Water is up a little and a slow current. The sky was overcast, windy, temps in the low 60's. The live sunfish was 2' under a jug, hooked just behind the dorsal fin and above the spine with a 11/0 mustad circle hook.
