Default Over 140lbs of Flathead catfish

We did the Apalachicola catfish tournament with some pretty good results, we landed over 140lbs of flatheads with a few fairly large fish in the mix. Unfortunately we didn't get one big enough to take the trophy but we had a blast fishing the Apalachicola and hopefully we will do better at the next event.

That is a good catch. Was the river flooded?

That's a heck of a catch at any rate. Do you have any idea how many pounds total were caught in the tournament? Just curious.

Nice mess of cats. Congratulations. Is there another picture of the rest of the 140#'s?
140#"s is a good trip. Sounds good.
