    Well Brothers me and Spencer went out yesterday and I caught my first flattie of 2006. Well actually caught 2. They where about 5 and 15 lbs didn't weigh them. Spencer had one on but he didn't know it it must have ran in so it didn't set the clicker off. When he was reeling in to check his bait it took off and he missed it. I also went out tonight by myself and caught 2 more a 8 and a 22 I think the bite is starting to turn on. Here is a couple pics. The first one was from yesterday.

While you guys were out catching great fish, The wife decided it would be a good weekend to repaint the house, luckily we got through that and are still a couple....:big_smile: Now Im unable to get out any this week so be sure to catch some for me will ya.

    It was an interesting night Saturday. We fished in a deep eddy that was cluttered with both fixed and floating wood. The best of the hits came on at midnight when the rain stopped.

    Congrats on the flathead. Well, four flatheads. Hopefully this recent rain will turn them on for all us on the GMR.
