    Went down to Marrietta cause the storm system was supposed to go north by nightfall. Got to the ramp a 7pm, steady rain. The weather guy said at 6pm that the "front had stalled" over the Ohio river. Too late to change plans. My brother and I launched anyway, and sat in the rain till close to 1am. He had 3 runs and missed them all at our first spot. I had none.
    Second spot we hit around 2:30, rain had stopped. He missed another,and I was starting to get upset lol. At 4:30 I got a run and caught a 13 pound flat. We fished all live bait, no cut.

    Every time I've taken guys Flathead fishing this year, someone has caught one. Three of them have caught a PB. This was the first trip I caught one over 10 lbs lol. I gotta start sitting in the front of the boat.

    I'm starting to feel like Flathunter, non fish catcher. lol

    Congrats on the catch bro. This weather has been kinda weird in the last month. Hopefully May will bring some more big boys out of the river and the lakes! rollo

    It's alright, Skip!

    At least if they were eating, you would have been right on top of them waiting!:cool2:
    It's May 1, we have a whole month of high expectations and anticipation ahead of us.
