The video shows you the process of catching huge flathead catfish in the Ohio River. We caught the bluegill at Raccoon Creek State Park and the catfish in the Ohio river, 30 minutes north of Pittsburgh next to Dashfields Dam.

That was a 20 pound fish, decent but not close to 50 inches

Nice video!! I live in Virginia now but I grew up in Pittsburgh fishing in racoon lake, cross creek lake, cherry valley, and the ohio river.. I have spent many nights along the river just like that fishing for big cats and your video makes me miss home!! The best place was right on the beaver river in rochester across from the marina or in the Ambridge reservoir ( at night with permission) hehe.. Big northern pike in that lake!!

Don't go to that lake for bass fishing it sucks there!! I hate Raccoon so much. Keystone is such a better lake I catch bass there all the time!

Spoiler alert: The fish they catch is nowhere close to 50 inches.
When you hold a bluegill or any small panfish, wrap your pinky and thumb around its head. Then you can easily slide the sharp fins down, and you will have a comfortable grip on the small fry.
looks to be around 15lbs
looks like a 20-35 lbs flatty.Just got done on the ohio river in wheeling last night got a 25lbs even flathead on a 5 inch sucker fish.Going back out tonight to see what kind of luck i have.well nice video and fish and good luck on your next trip.
