my buddy and i fished the nav channel fri 10:00am to sat 8:00am caught 20. nothing of any real size. 2 to 5 lbs. one flathead that might of weighed 12. the fish were hitting hard. when you got a bite the rod tip headed towards the water. its fun when they hit like that. only caught one female so i'm thinking the bigger ones are in the holes. maybe wrong but the noodlers can tell us that. when the nav channel is this high it limits the places you can fish so the jury is still out whether they are in full spawn or not.
