    Clayton,

    That rocks! What were those GPS coordinates again? Har t Har.

    Also, were you drifting anywhere? I've often wondered if I could luck out and get a flathead drifting.

    I went out for just a couple of hours the last two evenings. The fishing was a little slow but when they found the bait, it was a slamfest. The best bite last night was on cut sides. The night before, the best bites were on small shad cut in half and both chunks on the hook. Today, it looks pretty ugly out there but I might go just because I know the boat traffic wont' be as bad!

    Mike.

    Nice catches! Congradulations! I wish MY luck would change around HERE! Went out to a tributary leading into the Sacramento river last night and got an 8" squawfish and a 6" crappie! Better than nuthin' I guess, but I'm dying to hook into a big ol' cat! Only caught one this year so far, and he was only 3 and a half pounds! :angry:
