    Here are a few pics of my first Flathead caught at Patagonia Lake. About 15 minutes after sundown it slammed my bluegill on my Berkley Glowstick which by the way is my lightest set-up that I have. Really glad it did not snap in half, lol. Not the biggest flat that I have caught but it was the hardest fighting cat and took the longest to get in. I should have at least landed a couple more flats but you know I had issues. :smile2:

    Thats my point brian!!! Wasted time going to all these far places you know. you dont want to leave if its cold or something goes wrong when ur far but if ur at the lower salt leave whenever cause its only 15 min away no harm no foul!!!

    Went to Patagonia on Sunday. we shore fished from 2 locations and couldn't even get a gill. So i was thinking "I bet I can get some channels on Hog Wild". Sure enough. 2 minutes later I had a little eater. Then My brother caught 2 more within the hour. Go figure. It was the middle of the day though.

    Actually Both the San Carlos trip was planned before that 74 pounder, we went there the week before it was caught, Jason hooked into something huge that broke his line, so we planned the next trip. I can see myself going to patagonia, we will see............third is a charm:) LOL
