    My friend Darrel from the bait shop and I went to the river last night.Anchored up about 8:45 fished till 11:45.We only had two runs(neither one on my rigs).One run produced a 7.7 shovelhead,the other produced a mashed goldfish.The fish was caught on a decent sized bluegill.Water surface temp was 63.5.We fished a logjam-riprap spot that usually provides action.We may have bailed out a little soon but my buddy was dressed a little light.Good fishing and be safe.

    Spend your time fishing like Skip is saying, and the fish will spend their time on your hook.:wink: Flathead fishing takes patience and hours of dedication between bites often. But, you gotta be there to catch em. rollo
