Have any of you guys ever caught a decent sized flathead on any section of the Mississippi river? I frequently catch flatheads on live bait fished on bottom rigs, but none of them have been over fifteen inches. Any info anyone is willing to share would be greatly appreciated.

In my college days, my brother and I would go down below St Anthony Main and fish for catfish. We found them by accident. We saw fish surfacing and they looked big. We thought they were bass. So we were casting everything in the tackle box with no results. Frustrated and still watching these fish explode on the top of the water, I got an idea. I grabbed a floating rapala and casted it out and just let float on the top of the water with a few twitches once in a while....bammm!! The fight was on and the fish turned out to be channel cats 7 to 10 lbers in fast shallow water. Man that was fun! It was like catching steelhead.

They were in there taking advantage of the bait fish stunned from going over the spillway from the falls laboratory next to the falls. Father Hennepin Bluffs Park. Give it a try and let us know if they are still in there.

Personally i fish the Mn river but have been meaning to try the Mississippi. Best suggestion i have would be to maybe try larger bait. But to be fair i have caught some pretty small flatties on some rather large pieces of bait so idk.

I tried for Flats and Channels last night and got blanked. My buddy got a nice 26.5" thick walleye and a 26" Channel so it was fun to play net man!
