    Went out with grandpa on wed night, thursday and thursday night. It was 2 beautiful nights. We ended up with 11 fish total. 7 channel cats. The biggest was 10 lbs. 3 flatheads. The biggest flathead was 9 lbs 8 oz. And 1 blue at 6 lbs. Had a blast with grandpa seeing the willow lines bend down into the water lol. So it looks like the bites are coming on good now. Good luck and happy fishing to all. P.S. i will try to post pics as soon as i can figure out my camera lol. :smile2:

    And when we pulled the 7 lb flathead up it was tagged and grandpa didnt know what it was lol :smile2: so i explained to him what it was and then took it out of the flathead and scrapped the mud off of it and it was a pink tag for 150.00 bucks. that was worth the trip. so me and grandpa are spliiting the money lol. i got it sent off to mdc in clinton. what are the odds of getting 150.00. So my grandpa said now he is gonna play the powerball maybe we will win again lol. :smile2::smile2:. i couldn't believe it was worth 150.00 either until i seen reward 150.00 on top. has any other boc brothers or sisters caught a tagged flat or blue? thanks and good luck fishing.
