    Getting back on the water soon...Boated striper and a couple channels, but No flats yet! :too_sad: Have Shad, Gills, Golds, and Worms!!

    What do you think??------Day? or Night?, Deep, Shallow, water temp 53 and climbing.......Patients??

    Any Havasu Experts out there??

    I've learned a fair amount so far, and hope to contribute a little as time goes, maybe post a pic or two!

    Greetings and salutations Bob. I found this site by also trying to find info on flatheads. This place is a virtual smorgasborg of catfishing tips and experiences. Eat, drink and be merry, the flatties will come soon.........

    Welcome to the BOC Bob. Check out the library, talk about overwhelming information.
    :eek:h:
    I have a goal for myself this year, to catch a 25 pound flattie, it would be my first too.

    Good luck bro!

    Hey Bob......Welcome to the BOC. There are an awful lot of good folks here and a really good bunch of AZ people. Start getting ready, cause in 30 days or so it is gonna bust loose.

    Been awhile since I posted, :sad2: This last weekend (Sat) wasn't much fun....The boat ride was great!..A little over 150 miles, and found some good areas to try!

    What ruined it, was when I pulled back into my slip to get my bait, and some LOW Life, bottom dwelling skum sucking THIEF Stole my Basket full of blue gill!...Basket also!.....Pretty Chicken Chit! :sad2:
