No there has not been one documented. State record is just over 48lbs. I do think there are flatheads over 50lbs in this state.

And, I do believe there have been some unofficial ones taken in the Pittsburgh area rivers but never kept for "official" measuring. They were C & R'd. I am sure they are out there.

I have heard of some #50's being caught in Pa., just not registered. I know of 4 over #40 that came form the Susky. last year. In "08" I got a #45, #44, and 3 over #35. I know a guy that got a #46 Flat. and a #33 Channel around the Pitt. area. In "09" I got 3 or 4 over #35 and 1 just shy of #40. I know a guy that got a #42 in the spring of this year. It is just a matter of time. Hey loggy, you guys get that one from Aldred?

Do you know if they got it above or below the dam? I know below the dam get crazy on the weekends. It looks like opening day of trout. LOL
