    Here are a couple we released this week.
    Total we released 250 lbs of big flats.
    put 45 lbs of small flat fillets in the freezer though!!

    Fishing was a little tougher than usual. Anybody fishing the Oquawka area with any luck in the rising water?

    Thanks for the compliments guys.. We're going to do it again this next weekend in high water. Not looking for many results, I can't seem to find flats in high water.

    Thanks again,
