    Went out last night and didn't do bad. Me, Randy (impak209) and his girlfreind, and Micky (howie ketchedem). I had a run just before dark and missed it. Threw back out in the same spot and and about 45 min later got a 35 1/2 lber. Mickey got a 22 1/2 lber about 11. We didn't have any more runs after that. Both fish caught on live gills.

    joe you ever hear of flatties being caught out of the bay? i have spent a good amount of time out there and have never got one. alot of channels. maybe they are all up river.
