    I picked up my client at Camp Dogwood, School for the Blind, at the end of Mtn Creek at 6:30 AM. We fished the extreme back end of Mtn Creek for less than two hours and got five blues in there, largest close to seven pounds. Then we went to five points and fish one of the creeks in that area for the remainder of the time. In this area my client caught his first flathead (17.5 pounds) and man was he impressed with the fish and the fight that he had. In this area we picked up five more cats. Winds were in the 15 to 20 MPH range and water was stained. Bait of choice was cut blue gill and the heads out preformed the other cut. Dropped my client back off at Dogwood where I picked him up at 10:35+.

    Thanks BG, is a way it was a sad trip. Didn't occur to me until it was almost over, but it was my last guide trip in the Sundance.
