    Well the fish were bitting last night. I caught 3 blues from 10-33lbs. Also lost two flatheads. The second flathead was pretty big, 40lbs+. When i set the hook on him he didn't even move. After about 3 seconds he started moving, thats when I relised how big this fish was. After about 10 seconds the hook just came out. Man I was jumping up and down the boat cursing like Yosimity Sam. It was one I was looking for all summer. The good news, I know where he lives now. Also caught a 10lb bass in cast net this morning. But I guess that don't count. Good morning on the water. See-ya.

    Very nice night out. Sounds like you did very well. I went on Saturday night and caught a few fish. 1 blue about 6 pounds, and a few smaller channels. Hopefully on my next trip they will be biting a bit better, and i can hook up with some nice blues. I also got a visit from the Warden at about 11:00pm i was surprised to see them at Falls. They were 2 of the nicest wardens i have ran into.

    Thats a surprise to hear the Wardens were down there. I've never seen that. Iam glad thier making thier rounds down there. It keeps the juggers in line. Probley going back out later in the week. With the moon going to dark, the flathead bite should pick up. It was pretty bright last night, I hardly had to use headlight.

    Nice night. What type of hooks were you using? I've always used wide bends but thinking about going to circle hooks.
