To say we got the year started is an understatement. The flathead were out thick this day! Usually the ratio from blue catfish to flathead catfish is more, but it was the opposite today. One after another, the bite was nonstop action! There is something special about catching flathead from shore and hiking to find the fish. I should also note that all of these fish were caught with dead bait. We had a few bites on live bait but no hookups. Flathead catfish really don’t get huge in the Potomac, so I was happy with the 13lber that I was able to catch. Also I apologize for the mic issues; they have been plaguing me recently. We were able to end the video on a big blue catfish weighing 32lbs. The fight was insane. Drag peeling and good head shakes. Bank fishing can have some epic days out on the water so you never know what to expect. River fishing for flathead can be very challenging in this section of river, so in order to find some good spots yourself, you should do some research.

Hello all, My name is mark Pickett and I love fishing and exploring the outdoors. I have been fishing “seriously”for about 11 years now. I film fishing videos a few times a week and I am excited to share that all with the people online. Fishing is my passion, so I am always trying to bring the best content as possible. As time goes on, I look to improve the quality of my videos. Right now I do a lot of fishing for big catfish, but I enjoy catching multispecies as well. Enjoy the videos!
