    Howdy,
    I just wanted to share the results of my last trip to Bartlet over the weekend.

    * I met up with a few friends at Bartlet on Friday night and we fished until Sunday.. It was cold, and the fishing was tough..

    ~ Carps would only bite at night in the shallows, and the bluegills were located deep near the boulders adjacent to the dam..

    * I caught 1 flathead, (24lbs) on Friday night using a large carp head fished in about 25 feet at 5am...

    * The only thing I caught Saturday night was a buzz...
    ~ The water is very low, (37% I think)

    * Good luck if you go and stay warm...
    ~A

    Yeah I was at the Flats and tried Sat. night just screwing around until about 3am and I was surprised I didn't even get one bite in 5-6 hours. I too did catch a buzz though... gotta keep warm on those cold nights!

    Congrats on the nice 24lb'er though!

    Might head up next week for a couple of days and do some more serious fishing... If I do I will post the results for everyone.

    Good Catting,

    Steve

    I also went up to Bartlett with a couple friends on Saturday night. We didn't get out to the yellow cliffs until 9pm and went back to the houseboat at 1:30am. My friends were freezing cold! We had no trouble catching palm-sized bluegill for bait at the marina but caught no cats during our short trip on the main lake.

    Andy,


    Its nice to see that you are off to a good start this year...not only did you get a decent flattie the first time out, you also were able to get buzzed too.


    Thanks for sharing the pic.
