Got out on the Colorado river last Saturday night. The weather was really good! The air temps had cooled down to the 90's during the early night and the wind was up just enough to keep the mosquitos at bay...Water temp was at 77 degrees. I thought that we might not catch any flatties because they might be on the spawn period but we pressed on none the less. Got some blue gill from a good hole and hit our first spot. Through out the night, we got pretty good action. There were a total of 9 runs the whole night. With three fish landed. The biggest being just over 9lbs. In one hole, I hooked into something big! The fish pulled off line and when I went to set the hook, the 50lb power pro broke off:confused2:!! Im going back for that fish next weekend! I had all the fish on a stringer for pics the next morning but the 9lb'er got off when I was checking my motor over from a sand bar I hit...the other fish were not so smart:smile2:...another thing I noticed is that most of the fish that got off were not hooked....they were holding on to the bait and then they would let it go once they saw the boat...i was using cut blue gill with 6/0 hooks...i dont know what to make of that...they were obviously really small ones.
