    We were outfished by Dinkbuster & Salmonin thought. Their fish totals were higher, plus Dink got the 1st GMR Flathead between any of us. Good job Dink. :)

    dang thats a big channel! im not going to start another thread, so below is what we caught. between mark and i we caught 7 channels each with the biggest around 6lbs, and i got my first flat of the year, 9lbs. also an ugly softshell, and a cute little quarter-sized baby snapper. pic of baby snapper is of it inside an empty vienna sausage can. little booger must have just hatched, was floating down river on the surface of the water. sorry Mark, the pic of your channel turned out really dark for some reason so i didnt bother posting it:rolleyes:

    Very interesting, Mellon has nothing to say about my two big channels, I am shocked..He is just pretending it did not happen;)
