    I got on the water around 4:00pm and first cast caught a 2lb bass and then lots of small bluegill for the night. Had one giant run 1hr after dark and it ran me into a snag, lost it. 3hrs later I caught a 27inch channel on a live bluegill. I called a night after catching this one, pictures are posted on the channel cat section. Good first trip to this lake already love it there.

    Good for you Anthony. The last several times I have been up at Bartlett, the bite was slow. Going again this weekend maybe the monsoon weather change will wake them up a little.

    Anthony,
    It is frustrating when them flats run you into snags... When I fish next to the rocks at Bartlet, I will tight line them, or at least try to get to the reel and stop them ASAP. There are more little Flatheads than big Flatheads @ Bartlet, and those little ones are competitive with their food. They will take the bait and bolt right for cover... Usually the big cats will pick up the bait and move away real slow... They are not too worried about another fish taking their food.

    * nice report.. I wish I was there..
    ~A
