    Heading out to osage state lake tonight. was there earlier fishin for gill cause i was bored but only caught one. was plannin on using it for flathead bait but i hooked it wrong and it flew off of my hook (im a dork!) lol :smile2: They just weren't biting today but the water level seems to be good and the water temp was fairly warm. just was a little bit to windy to fish earlier though. goin back tonight to do some night fishing for some channels.

    yes most baitstores carry the above hooks..Some dont carry circlehooks while others do.If topeka doesnt have it on the blvd you might try the gas station at green acres down by pomona

    Walmart will have them or drive a little more and go to the bait shop on Highway 24 and support a local company.
