well after waiting and waiting it seems the flatheads on the merames have begun to wake up, and start biting.went out last night under 44 bridge right at 270, within 15 minutes the first line got slammed. handed it off to my girlfriend and she fought that sucker for about 10 minutes before the hook popped out. saw some splashes from it.....it was a big guy. no sooner than we got it rebaited and back out, my rod start dipping. one was on! fought him in towards shore and then it happened..... he jumped out of the water, and got stuck in a bush.....if its not one thing....its another. took off my pants and boots and waded out to get him. ended up being a real nice 10 pounder. got a couple more bites but didnt land anymore after that. the bait was live green perch, and judging by the number of bites i think the slump for flatties out in this area might be nearing its end. water temp is up a lot, mid 60's i think.
