What a crazy time, First off, we go to the dam(brianthelion, myself, gwille, and jasonhumble), this is a 60-75 degree (damn near vertical) hike/slide/bruise/gouging decent about 400 to 500 yards. We fished within 200 yards of the Dam itself. No BS one misstep and any of us easily could have been killed. So what do 35,39,33, and 21 year old men do? Nothing smart of course, so down we went, cause it looks great by the water. Oh yeah, it was getting dark of course as we started. the mountain is all broken glass and sharp rocks, Our shore line was about 6 inches before the water, and had to sit on a huge slope, and sit on rocks. So off to flathead hunt land we go. 1030, Jason's reel starts screaming so fast i thought it was going to smoke, He sets the hook, and the fish immediately snaps 30 pound spider wire. I burn my tag ends, so the end where it broke was frayed, not burnt, so some monster fish has a 8/0 hook in its mouth still, and it was not a bad tie up. Sometime later, I'm sort of laying down dozing off, and there goes Gwille with Fish on. Little Channel, same thing an hour later, this time though he says it is huge. We run over there and Gwille smokes in a 18 pound channel cat. Rest of the night Brianthelion, caught a small channel, Gwille caught 1 monster channel, and I think his PB catfish, and 3 other channels. No other runs for us. Now we have to hike out.......Well here is the damage report from the decent to the water, before we hike out: Gwille, laid his leg wide open from sliding onto a piece of glass, the cut is about 1.5 inches long, over 1/4 inch wide, and probably the same deep, and he got bit by a king snake Myself, screwed my reconstructed knee up, possibly re-tore a ligament, and glass in my hands Brianthelion, legs all scraped to hell, that was about it (FYI he did this wearing sandals!!) Jasonhumble, nothing (cause you know he's 21!!) So up we go, got up fine, but had to drag my right leg, cause my knee is screwed up, while i use my left leg to push my body up the mountain. So exhausted when I hit the top, and overheated that i puke for 5 minutes strait! All and all it was brutal but fun, and made some great friends, Gwille and Jason, Gwille is tougher than woodpecker lips, he stayed all night even after filleting his leg wide open! can't wait to fish with these guys again! I think san Carlos Dam trip to where we were at will be by boat next time. Gwille is at Urgent care as I update you, getting stitches, and will probably need every bit of 10-12 of them.
