    Had a good night tonight. Fish didn't start biting untill dark but they stayed consistant up untill about 11pm. Mostly flatheads biggest coming in at 22lbs one at 12, a couple around 5. A couple blues around 7lbs and a couple small channels. Everytime we would decide to leave the spot we were at we would have a rod load up. First time I was already reeling in a rod when my down rod loaded up. I set the hook only to feel it for about 5 sec when the line broke.:angry: Nice fish must have had a nick in the line! The fish were still biting good at 11pm but the trip quickly came to a halt when I noticed the boat was taking on water!!!! :embarassed: Not sure whats going on but I will find out. Other than the LEAK it was a great night to be on the water. Cool, clear and biting fish. I love this time of year!
