    Well I finally got the pics of the fish of 8-28,,from my bro.I had to go to his house and send them to myself ( email the file)so heres a few of the flats we caught that evening / night. the first 2 is of the same fish,, but the rest are of individual fish hope you like em..

    Man these flatheads are smoking right now, These fish were holding on the edge of a 7 1/2 - 8' deep rock flat about 80' long, around 40-60' out from the bank, That dropped down into some deeper water..I'm probaly going in the morning if I can get a hold of my boy:wink:

    Here is some more for the list,I went by myself the Wensday,10th and caught 3 and had my line snapped once right above the hook:sad2: felt like a nice fish, It must of had a burr in the leader.:embarassed: All fish were caught fishing the same rock flat as before but closer to the bank in 5' of water..,The first set of pics tell the story as the are shown,from the beginning-to the bank.I'm going to try to get a video made,, Had started on it ,but last night I deleted all I had by mistake:eek:oooh: This new camrea..LOL.

    The second set of Pics; We all went back on Thursday;the 11th and caught 15, 2 Blues and 13 flatheads,,Fish went from 9 to a 27# my son caught. I say keep them coming..

    Just got back from another lake in fisherville a little while ago , fished for about 4-5hrs and got nothing, not even a hit..Had 6" bluegill running like crazy but the big cat just could'nt catch him:smile2:.
