I would like to thank everyone that come out to fish with us Saturday night on Lake Hickory. It surely was a beautiful weekend with pleasant temperatures for fishing. We had a total of 12 teams to come out to compete. There were 2 flatheads caught in this tournament and the first 2 flatheads to ever be weighed in at a NCCATS Lake Hickory catfish tournament. We've heard for years that there were flatheads in Lake Hickory but this was the first time that anyone had weighed in or brought to the weigh-in.
New Lake Hickory Record set for 5 catfish. Old record was just over 57 pounds.
