    fished a spot on the gmr i havent fished since last year, and i had a delightfull surprise. we didnt get to the river till around midnight, after twenty min. of fishing i got a steady run on a 14 in. sucker. set into a 13 pound flat. not even ten min. later got another around 8. probally half an hour later got another around 10. as soon as i got that one unhooked and back my other rod took off, another around 5. we had a little calm time for about 45 min. and got another steady run on a big sucker. set into him, and after a great fight, landed a 29 pound flat. after a few attemted photos on a cell phone, sam got a run and landed a nice channel that was dragging about ten ft. of broken of line. we untangled that mess, and sat down for about 5 min, and got another run, landed him, a nice 16 pound flat. a nice way to end the night even though we ran out of bait, so the flats are definatley starting to turn on the feed again

    Sounds like you guys had a way better night than we did. Only caught 2 small channels and a 13 lb flattie. Good job!

    I'm jealous. That beats my best night of fishing. I love the GMR though - never went home skunked and always manage a half dozen fish minimum.
