    Went out again last night from 8:30-12:30, landed 5 channels all around 3 lbs, had three very nice runs on my flathead poles, set up with nice fat bluegills, only got one in the boat...pics are attached. The other two were lost, one snapped the line on my prop after I couldn't get the net over him, and the other was never hooked fully, when I set the hook it went right back into the bluegills tail :crazy:.
    Took a couple of my nieghbors boys...they had a blast.

    Nice flattie. Atleast you got one in the boat. A decent one at that.:006::0a22:

    Dave,
    I fish from saint charles dam north, up to ferson creek. Launch out of boy scout island.

    Kenny,
    Where did you end up fishing..I didn't notice anyone by the police station on my way back to the ramp. How's that outboard treating you today?? :big_smile:

    I hate it when you double hook the bait on the hookset! It does happen though. Nice job on the fish, I planning on going out and hopefully getting into some on Thursday night.
