A few of us fished Lake Wylie on Friday night and into Saturday morning. The weather was clear and the temps were in the 70's at dark and fell into the mid 50's by dawn. Water temps ranged from 65 on the main lake to 75 in the South Fork River. I was fishing with Mudkip, and we planned to catch a few good channels and then focus on some big blues. Well, the plan all went to crap in a hurry. We started off with a bang and I landed a 30 pound flathead an hour into it! It was a personal best flathead for me. Not a bad way to start off the evening. After that it kinda went downhill. We could not find a channel bite and only caught three more. No blues were to be found. Some of the other guys out on the water managed to find some nice channels in the 6-7 pound range with an eight pounder thrown in the mix. It looks like we chose the wrong end of the lake for big channels, but the right end for a big flathead. We hit the same spots where we caught the big blues last month, but they were not there. One good hit and pull down, but whatever it was came off near the boat. Heartbreaking.
