My boys and I had another awesome night on the colorado last Saturday night! Got on the water at the usual time. Getting in the water was a real pain in the butt because of all the holiday traffic at the dock. Once we got in though, it was good from there. Got about a dozen 'gills in the livewell and hit the first spot well before dark. The hooks that that I have dont have a wide enough gap. I had thought of this last time out because we missed a lot of runs that night and Saturday night...after about four missed runs I managed to hook one on cut bait and got him to the boat. From there I decided to scale down on all the cut bait chunks in order to leave enough room on the hooks. I also had one that was a real horse but he got off at the boat:angry:...right around 4 am I thought that he came back for some more when my tuna stick got slammed hard! I set the hook and reeled it in to find the largest large mouth bass I have ever caught! The best part of the night though was when my five year old got his first ever flathead! At first I thought that he wasnt going to be able to get the fish in but he pumped and pumped until the fish got to the boat and in the net! Man was I proud!:big_smile::big_smile: Now the youngest member of the Hawkins family is an official flathead hunter! I got pics of all the fish weighed them and released them all back into the river. The flatheads ranged from 7lbs to 2lbs. The large mouth was almost 6lbs he seemed bigger though....yep...it was a great night!
