    Went out last Sunday Night on the White River from 4:30pm to around 2:00am . The water temperature was 68.5 and clear, however it was really down due to the lack of rain. We fish a snag early on and boated a few channels and later set up on a sand bar and built a fire. We caught a couple more on the sand bar in about 4 foot of water. Goldfish and chubs were the bait of choice and seemed to produce the best, although we did catch a few small channels on Danny king's Punch bait. I did have a big fish break my line around 1:20am . I think during the night my line some how got nicked, needless to say I will be re-spooling before the next outing. I have attached a few pictures. I hope this information helps.

    Rob,

    I haven't caught any Flatheads yet, however I did have what I think was a nice Flathead break my line on that trip. I was using a very large Goldfish, (almost a pound), and the way the fish hit I am sure it was a Flattie. Unfortunately I must have had a nick in my line because after the rod loaded up and the circle hook was set I was only able to pump the rod a couple of times before the line snapped. I have re spooled all my poles and will try again its just a matter of time.

    Mike

    Out of curiosity, where are you guys getting those big 'ol goldfish from? I haven't found anywhere short of stealing koi out of the neighbor's waterscape.

    Whenever I flathead fish it always seems like they just sit there and gum the bait forever. Every once in awhile they will hit it hard and take it. Does this just happen to me or does anyone else have this problem with flatheads. It seems to take as long as 20 minutes. This is one reason why I gave the circle hook up while flathead fishing.... Thanks "Ironcat"

    Ben,

    Pike Bait and Tackle in Lawrence has large Goldfish and Chubs. They sell them buy the pound. I think the large ones are 12 bucks a pound ( I think caviar is cheaper ) :crazy:, however they have been having trouble getting the large ones the last couple of weeks. The Goldfish are easier to keep alive because they only need 2ppm of dissolved oxygen to survive unlike the Chubs which need at least 4ppm and moving water.
