    My brother and I hit the water at about 10 this morning. It was still pretty foggy though. We got to the first spot and my brother immediately catches a small flathead. Move to the next spot and he gets an 18lb flathead before we can even get the rods in the water. Gets another blue right after that. Move to a couple more spots and I finally catch a cat:smile2:

    Go to the last spot and Rob catches another small flathead and I caught a striper on a spinnerbait:big_smile: It was a beautiful day on the water, just seemed like as soon as the tide switched and started coming in the bite just died.

    Hey Wes, nice fish! Enjoy seeing your pics. Hope I can post some pics like that sometime soon.

    What bait did you catch those fish on?

    The two bigger flatheads came on bream heads and the rest were on shad. Didn't have any eel though. Couple of times I've used it here recently I haven't got squat on it but it seems to be producing for anybody else:confused2:

    Cathy and I went for a couple hours today. Only one small bite and one little blue. Oh well, can't catch 'em every day. Also, the wind was really bad out there today. Randy and Straw got a 12lber and I think one more little one if I heard correctly. That new boat sure does do good in that smaller chop....smooth as a babys behind:smile2:
