My name is Erik Barrantes out of Mesa and I caught a flathead catfish that I felt would be worth sharing and submitting for the Fat Cat Challenge to AZGFD.

On Sunday, Aug. 11 at Bartlett Lake I was able to land a good sized flathead catfish. I was able to catch the fish using a 3-way rig with a live bluegill. The flathead measured 49 inches in length and 30 inches in girth.
