    Steve and i went out again tonight to see if we could have any luck. Steve caught the first fish which was a 22.5 pound flathead which was a great fish. But the good news out of it was that it was a spawned out female with the scratches healing on her head. I gave steve alittle grief about this fish because it was 3 ounces short of the best of the year. The next fish i took, it was a 6.5 pound flathead, also was a female that had healing scrapes. We sat there with nothing happening when that little flathead screamed my abu, it scared the hell out of me. We hit a calm spot there for about an hour and a half. Then steve got a run had the fish on but came off in the direction of my abu, i re-casted out and within 5 minutes my clicker was singing the loudest we have heard all year. It was a 15.9 pound flathead which interesting enough had a fresh gash in her mouth and was bleeding pretty good. Im convinced it was the fish steve lost. Well it was a good night and i cant wait to get out again

    Thanks for sharing the pictures and story with us Nate. I am glad to see the flats are coming off the next now and starting to bite again.
