Not a bad fish, put up a good fight, but I just played him out until he got tired! Some of the sweetest fish you can eat!

Temptation is just too great...I have to ask...

Where did you catch this flathead, erny ?

Oh, your post is back Must be a gremlin in the system...

Yeah, it is a flathead.

I have a few questions about it though...

Hi garfield,

My last "long term" girl friend was a big, big Garfield fan...She even insisted on having a Garfield coffee cup and a Garfield stuck to the car rear window !! Garfield tea towels, Garfield bath towels, Garfield floor mats, Garfield fridge magnets...

Would have worked out OK...If not for the fact that I am a dog man...hehe

Not sure if Fishermancw has erred...It seems that in the USofA flathead is a type of catfish. ??

More interesting is that it is now 5 days and erny hasn't said where he photo shopped...oops, sorry...caught his flathead !!

Come on erny...You went to so much effort making this photo, surely you can tell us where you "caught" it !!

i actually got my nickname in 1968, (well before the cat), after sir garfield (gary) sobers, great west indian cricket allrounder of the 50's,60's n 70's. bit tragic about your 'garfield girlfriend', takes all sorts to make the world up though.

as for ernies' flattie, it'll be out of the swan, maybe claremont or melville waters be my guess.

That is interesting...I am not an expert on the different species of flathead. But I know some kinds are only found in very small areas...

Swan you reckon...The T-shirt the man that has been photo shopped into the image is wearing is the Black Aces...The Black Aces is a bikie (or biker) rock band from Bendigo. I guess you would have to be a bikie type person to have a Black Aces T-shirt... The Swan is just a fishing day trip from Bendigo !!

Then again, everything in Victoria is a day trip...would not want to stay there for 2 days ...just joking, Victorians are lovely people until you get to know them

That is a relief...I am glad you are not related to that stupid cat

it's funny, i for some strange reason just thought it was in perth. i'm also no expert on flatties, but i did get one over at rotto a couple of months ago spearfishing. and ernie is so right, absolutely beautiful to eat.

Oh, sorry. My mistake. Of course you meant the Swan in WA...I was thinking of a different location.

I can be such a dunce on a Sunday
