    Tonight is the night! August is upon us and with it the best Flathead fishing time of the year, In my opinion.
    Me, Firechief4201, Junior42 are gonna meet up with our Brother from down South of us Katfish Ken. Hopefully we can put him on some nice Flats or even some nice Channels. I'm ready to get that Big Skunk off my back and hook into a Big Ol' Catfish! Maybe the Gar will be somewhere else. LOL! I'm gonna do my best to stay out of the water but you all know me, I may get too hot with this brace on and go for a swim....:eek:oooh::crazy::confused2::wink::smile2:
    Wish us luck, we'll be pulling an all nighter with a bunch of different cut and live baits. Maybe we'll get lucky and find out what their wanting to feed on.
    Hopefully there will be pics to post of this event. If anybody is in the neighborhood give us a yell or stop by. We won't be that hard to find.

    This was my 1st time fishing the lower part of the Big Sandy River. I'm sure it won't be my last :wink: I had fished around tugs once before years ago but it was much the same as I remembered it. For me it was a great pleasure having firechief4201 tell some of the history and legends of the area. It was a trip that will be unforgettable for me .:wink::smile2:
    I would like to take this opportunity to thank John,Danny and Adam for the great hospitality and fellowship during our trip last night:smile2::wink::big_smile: You guys are great.

    Look like it was a fun trip and everybody stayed dry .:smile2: . My father in law gave me a barge theory I hadn't thought of . The tugs cut up the baitfish ringing the dinner bell .

    After sleeping for a while I'm now back among the living. I had a great time fishing Saturday night with you guys. It was great meeting you Ken. Hopefully next time I'll not be feeling as rough.
    I did finally get the skunk off my back, It wasn't big but It was a Flattie.
    I'm enclosing a pic of one lazy fisherman that was with us...:wink::smile2::smile2::smile2:

    I didn't know if he was getting bait or try to pick up a fish.
