    I went out Sat and Sunday morning from 7:00AM - 1:00PM. Caught a little bit of everything. The Flatties are being less aggressive now and hitting cut bait a little better (quicker) then they are live bait. Caught (2) descent size each day, some 3-5lb blues, some smaller channels. While bait fishing for bream, I got into a school of some nice crappie and pulled about (7) of them in. I need to start tying down my bream pole to the bank. I lost one of in a matter of seconds. It was about (3) ft out with a bit of worm. I heard my clicker and turned my head, looked back and my bream pole was gone. It was like a bad magic show. I think it may have been a snapping turtle that got it, but Im not sure. Ill try to gets some pics uploaded when I get home today.

    That makes (2) poles lost the same way Mike. I have to hit up Dick's again to buy another. If you find the ones pulled in, you can have em. You going out this week? I probably won't be till the weekend again. Maybe stay overnight Friday. Need to stock up on some fire wood and mantels for the lantern.
