    I've been busy lately so haven't had a chance to post much. But on Sunday fullstringer, snakeslayer, & I made it out on the Wabash & had a pretty good night. We only caught 5 FHC but had an hour (from 9pm-10pm) that between the 3 of us could barely manage our 9 poles. We were getting hit like crazy on live & cut bait. We also landed 3 CCF all about 8 pounds.

    Our 5 flatties were 4, 6, 7, & 10 pounds with the highlight of the night being a 36# 4oz. male that Brecken caught at about 9:30. As Brecken was fighting the fish he would stop reeling & whine about being tired. Andy & I were giving him crap, "Come on ya wuss! Just get that fish in!". As Brecken got him up in the shallows Andy waded out to grab it & looked at me & yelled "Holy Crap!!! That's a 40 pounder!!!" Not quite 40, but pretty close. Pics of the 36 & 10 below.

    Yeah, but if we're going to do that we need to do it soon! I'll be way too busy pretty soon to get too much more fishing in!

    Oh, we've been using that sinker slide/float rig you showed me & have had some very good results with it. We use it on 1/2 - 1/3 of our rigs each night we go out.

    Looks like you fellas done well for yourselves. Congrats. Are you gonna make the Wabash River Gathering? If so get over to the post and cast your vote for one of two locations, then we all can vote on a date. Hope you can make it.

    What a difference 3 days makes! We went back out to the same hole Wednesday night & had about 3 hits all night. However, we did manage to land a 17 pound flattie that was caught on a bluegill tail. Andy has the pic. We'll get it posted soon.

    We also ran into 3 other guys who we encouraged to check out the BOC. Hopefully they'll join us!
