    Got my first River fish. Its a flat. Caught it on Goldfish up at Missouri Hill home. 2-3 lbs, I reckon. Wasn't gonna keep it but the bugger got my hook good. It looked like I could get it back. Well I did get the hook back, but the fish didnt make it, so I brought him home. 11 ounces of meat off bone. Didnt really have any means to weigh him before we fillet him. Wife weighed Cut up pieces afterwards. Not a very good pic, wife was behind the cam.

    Also got the Nastiest Sunburn I have ever had. Woulda used sun screen but the wife took it out the car.....bait shop didnt have any, and didnt feel like stoppin AGAIN. Regretting that decision now, but that wont stop me from going back out tomorrow!!

    He felt like I was snagged or draggin in a log then up popped Mr. Wiskers. I screamed like I caught a 40lber. Lol. I didnt know there was a guy on the bank not too far from me.

    Well tomorrow my uncles taking me out in his boat so I should hopefully have even better luck. Good luck to everyone else going fishin this weekend!!

    Still gunnin for the big'un. IF I can catch'em anyone can!! Stay with it guys don't give up!!

    At least you got a tasty meal out of him! Keep your line wet and you'll hook into a big one eventually!

    Welcome to the Boc to all. Michael I sent you a pm. The cat bite was slow for me but I got 3, an 11 and 7 #blue and a flat about the size you are holding in you pic. After getting bait I did run into some white bass slammin schools of baby shad and caught 16 of them, until I remembered what I went to the river for. I'd like to get out the this evening but I dont think mamma is gonna let me go. Well I got to clean fish. Keep fishing that big one WILL COME.
