    I left out Friday about 5am and went to a few different places and finally got back about 4am this morning. I'm wore out!!!
    I ended up catching several flatties with the biggest one at 15.5lbs(avatar) and several channels(1-6lbs) and a couple blues(11.8lbs biggest).
    The cool thing was I got to try out Akwolf's Kat-Bobbers and glowsticks. I caught the big flattie and several other fish using them.
    Not a bad weekend but staying up for 50 hours straight was and is a little rough!!! :crazy::eek:oooh::smile2: I hope to get back out once I recover from this trip!!!:big_smile:

    Thank You all!!! It was a good weekend overall. That flattie fought like a 20+ pounder. I was surprised when it only weighed 15.5. I forgot to mention that all fish were released to fight another day. :wink::cool2::big_smile:
    I don't think i'll be going fishing that long for a long time. I'm still recuperating from it. I think every muscle is stiff and sore. Its all good though,I go see my new Dr next Monday! :big_smile: Hopefully he'll get me fixed so I can get out more often.
    BTW, I realized that 11.8lb Blue was my biggest yet. The flattie was the biggest one of the year. Why couldn't I have caught them during the fishoff??? :roll_eyes::sad2::big_smile::smile2:
