    Flatty I got from Bartlet last night. Freaking cold, but the lake was quite and it was nice to see the water up again..
    * I fished off a sand bar Saturday evening, in the morning the sand bar was 6 inches under water...
    ~Water temp was about 55 degrees, air temp was around 30 with wind all night.

    I had another run about 3 or 4 in the morning, but I was too frozen to get out of my bag...
    All bites were on cut carp.
    Channel cats were biting all day and night on Garlic shrimp.

    nice pictures. i've spent a few nights like that. laying in bag listening to drag going out and too darn cold to get up and grab it. LOL
    when fishing canals all night, i sleep in back of truck under camper shell. leave door open and have pole next to me. have been known to pull fish up next to shore half out of water and then get in morning.

    Ha, The picture was in the morning after the sun came out.. I caught that one around midnight... He made about 8 fat fish tacos for us last night...:big_smile:

    That was the only flathead I caught. I had a mess of channel cats about eater size as well that I caught the day before.
