    went out this evening with Howard (new B.O.C. bro'), last minute to some boat docks in a Geist Res. neighborhood. i wasn't sure what to expect as we were in a spot that was probably about 50 ft accross and about 10-12 ft. deep. when i arrived H had already caught an approx. 8lbs channel and 2 3-4 lbs channels. after about 10 min in water, caught about a 3-4 lbs channel. about 10 after that my line took off and i set the hook. 5 min later i landed a 8-10 lbs flatty! i'ts not a big one for boc standards but my first and my biggest catch of the season so far. all we had was a cell phone cam so if it is decent, will post. maybe tomorrow i will catch one that i can use for my avatar picture (that is why i don't have a pic yet). one hour on the lake with your close bro' catching flatties, channels, and bullheads...priceless!

    Congrats on the flattie. I would call that a bonus on Geist or Morse. I will be on the river all weekend canoeing and fishing at night if you want to come up.

    Like rairdog just said...that is a bonus on either one of those lakes. Congrats. I've caught 2 flatties outta Geist over the past 5 years, both were up at Geist Park, yet to get one out of Morse. I have caught a few on Fall Creek Just below the Geist dam too on occasion.

    Congratulations man! Now be prepared for many sleepless nights going after those big boys, the first one I caught got me hooked and my wife wishes I would have never caught it. HAHA:big_smile:
