    I caught 3 channels last weekend, this morning I caught a flathead and one channel cat.

    Sorry no pics, nothing over 10-lbs, and certainly not the 40 and 50 -lb fish I have been so lucky to catch in previous years.

    But at least I am catching a few fish, which is better than I have done all summer.

    I just hope we get a spell of warm weather, so the fall flathead bite dont end before it really kicks in.

    Come on man... we gotta tell everyone the story of the Flathead!

    We were reeling our rods in and Jack goes, "I think there's a fish on here." It ended up being a 5 or 6 # Flathead! The rod didn't move, crazy huh?

    I'm glad it's picking up for ya Jack. You just had some ridiculously bad luck there for a spell. But i knew that streak had to end soon. You're too good a fisherman for it not to. I'm certain you're gonna land some big ones too before the season is over.

    Good to hear that Jack, that 40 plus lbr is lurking out there just waiting for your bait when you least expect it.

    It's been so bad for me lately that, I started throwing 20's into the water...and I still couldn't buy a bite!

    Do turtles count?(TKO!)
