    The bigger Flats are starting to pick up on the river!

    They are reducing the outflow at Tuttle today though, tomorrow may be different:wink:

    Caught one just over 15 today and my co-pilot lost 2 decent ones in the wood:cool2:

    How could they cut the flow down at Tuttle Creek outlet much more?
    That climb down the rip-rap is getting longer by the day, bro!
    The little lady that has graced me with her company has caught a
    couple of good solid channels, one on Tuesday and one on Wednesday.
    They bit on nightcrawlers under a bobber while I stubbornly stuck with
    cutbait. Might try again tomorrow, but I fear my buddy has taken ill.
    Nothing serious we hope. Thing of it is if I go out by myself, a big
    cat will probably stick its head out of the water and ask where Taylor
    went to...Nice to watch the Fat Cat bobber work, though! Casts well,
    rides high with 1.5oz egg sinker below. Taylor broke off one that just
    flat snapped her 10lb test mono up above the rig. The knots didn't
    give, that would have left a telltale pigtail on the end. I imagine that
    brute was around 10, maybe 12 lb. She wanted to use the Zebco 33.
    Warned her, I did! Yess, them cats tasted fine!

    Yeah, they had scheduled to reduce to 500cfs, but extended that again, so a couple more days at 1000cfs it looks like.

    Went out for a couple hours this morning, and got skunked except for a softshell.

    Water was down a few inches and muddier than it was Friday. Missed a couple runs that I think were flats, and lost about 1/2 dozen hooks to the wood.
    What a great mornng though, the deer were out watering after stuffing there guts with corn. Might dust the bow off this afternoon and harrang a few arrows at the target:roll_eyes:

    I found the deer I want to see during season last night, I passed on him last year because of his potential and I think it was a good move. I am going to try the muzzle loader season for the first time this year. As long as I can get him patterned well enough it doesn't interupt my flathead fishing for to long that is. Glad you are getting some action on the river, I have been in the hayfield to many hours to get much fishing in. If it rains us out of that though, I will be ready.

    I've tinkered with bow-hunting for several years now, but haven't ever gotten a deer. I'm not being picky either. I don't care about racks or size, I just want a chance at one that's at least bigger than a rabbit. I started out not knowing what the heck I was doing, now that I've learned a great deal, through trial and error, it's almost impossible to get any quality time in the timber due to kids activities and honey-do lists. I'd take the kids with me, but they never shut up!
