I had read a few posts saying people are catching mostly small flats, under 8lbs the last few days, and this is what my freinds and I have been experiencing too. The mechanic who put new tires on our semi today said they had been running lines on a creek now for 3 days and their biggest flat was 7lbs. About half the flats they cleaned had eggs he said. I think the big fish are mostly spawning now, just wanted to get some more opinions. I am going fishing Friday and I am thinking about skipping the usual big bait, big fish tackle and channel cat fishing covering a bunch of water. Thanks for your input.
