    Earlier this evening I went out and caught about two dozen blue gills. Very determined to get into some nice flats. After having a little fun catching gills on a ultra light rod, I headed for the river. Walked all the way to a spot I have been wanting to fish. When I got there, there were some people fishing and not enough room. No biggie so off to another spot. I ended up going to Cooley Lake River Access to give it a try. Got everything to the bank and baited all three rods. After getting the last one in the water I sat down and noticed some lightning not to far off. I didn't think we were going to get heavy rains tonight until tomorrow. Maybe ten minutes later it was developing right above my head. So I am packing things up and went down to one rod. Five minutes later all those gills that I caught went into the river and I was outta there:angry: <lol> no flatheads for me tonight darnit:tounge_out::roll_eyes:

    I feel ya, bro. Skippie and I put in at La Benite and had the same kind of deal. About dark when I was kind of getting interested, the lightning started over west and since we had to run back that way to the ramp, we pulled anchor and headed out. Got back to the ramp just as the rain started. Glad we got back in time, it was freakin' ugly out there:smile2:

    On a side note, a transformer or something ate it's lunch on the bridge and it was a pretty decent show watching it arc out and blow sparks into the river:smile2:

    As I was driving down the hill from missouri city heading back on 210. I saw a huge and I mean huge green/blueish glow over that way. That must have been that ark you were talking about. That was just freakin nuts!:crazy: I bet that was wild being so close it for you guys. Catching the blue gills was a lot of fun, but I was looking forward to being out all night going for those flats. I watched the news, weather channel and looked on-line and it seemed like we wern't going to get much of anything. <lol> boy did we ever get pounded.

    You know that was kind of dumb of me huh <lol>:roll_eyes: Those gills I had were surly big enough to eat at 8-10 inches. Just wasn't thinking and wanted to get out of there as fast as I could. It originally looked as though it may pass to the side, but when it developed overhead with cloud to ground lightning I was going as fast as I could to get outta there. Ten miles away in Misssouri City I could see that huge glow from that ark. I wonder what it would have been like having a front row seat as Brandon did. With all the rain from last night and all day today. Tonight I am going to try a spot that I have never fished, but heard about after a good rain. I will have my rain gear with me so if it does decide to rain while I am out there this evening it won't be a big deal.
