FIRELANDS OUTDOOR NOTEBOOK Looking to land a big cat is a blast

Catfishing is a favorite sport among local anglers and each summer, dozens, maybe hundreds of them head for rivers and lakes seeking a stringer of prime eating.

They call them flatheads or sometimes shovelheads, and while some fair-size ones live in Charles Mill Lake, southeastern Ohio is the place to seek these trophy fish.
