So I bought a boat at the beginning of the summer, thinking I would catch more fish with it. Well I took my dad out Crappie/Bass fishing yesterday morning and ran the trolling motor battery down(which we use at night in the Waki)and didn't have a chance to charge it. So my buddy calls me up and says we should go fishing, and I tell him about the battery, so he suggests Bowersock, since we both live 1/2 mile from it. We fished there a lot before the boat, so I figured why not? We went and got some some gills/sunfish at a local pond, then got down there about 7:00pm. We set up with Katbobbers, down about 5 ft, and threw in. Almost instantly, my bobber goes down. First fish was the big one, 25 lbs-ish(no scale). Hell of a fight, he kept trying to go back under the dam. I didn't have a chance to set out my other poles, so I threw one of them in while I re-baited the first one. Then that pole goes down, and it's another flattie. Then it gets dark, and my partner is still having no luck, and some other guys show up and start fishing. Baitclicker goes off, and another flathead. Ten minutes later, another flattie just like that one. My friend is using the same bait and our lines aren't 5 feet from each other, and he played net man all night. What a guy! I don't get it. I usually have a hell of a time trying to catch one flathead, and somehow caught 4 last night. Things I learned here: They bite early round there, bluegill work well, the river doesn't have to be up for good fishing, and the north side is better than the south(and easier to access). And you don't need a boat to catch good fish. The two bigger fish were released, but the two smaller ones I gave to the other guys down there because they needed them more than I did. PS the bigger one is by far my PB!!!!
