    In the middle of November... at 12:30 PM... bright sunny day...

    I got me a 36 lb flatty!!

    Thanks to Skip for showing me his top secret super spot on the Kokosing (I had to show him Garry Ryan's Top-Secret-Hot-Dog-and-Velveeta-Bait first)!!!

    Was a blast. That was the only thing I caught, but Skip about limited out on channels... was just a great day to be out on the river...

    Will post up some pics as soon as I find the cable that goes to my camera.. Skip has some, maybe he can put a couple up...

    Thanks again, Skip!! Was a great day...

    Like Jerry said, it was a beautiful day, sunny and warm with giant squirrels chasing each other along the banks. Just a pleasant day to fish.
    Thanks for the good company and conversation.

    Jerry popped this 36 pounder while I got stuck with 5 channels lol, but we were getting action all day so it was fun thruout.

    Congrats on the new PB!
    Looks like I'm going to have to follow Skip's truck when he starts to go out fishing. I think he gets all of the flatheads before they make it down my way. :smile2::eek:oooh:

    Thanks guy! You won't believe it, but I had to talk Skip into stopping the boat in that spot.... he wanted to go further upriver, but I just had a gut feeling and wanted to give it a shot....

    He's still the man, though! I'm not goinna take a thing away from him!!

    Just wanted everyone to know that my previous post about putting us on the spot was pure BS, made with Skip's approval and consent. In fact, it was his idea. Really.

    If I could delete or edit it, I would.

    I had nothing to do with getting us to the spot. All I did was throw the bait out, and hang on for dear life.
