    Well we didnt see too many pitches tossed our way last night but we did connect on every one we saw....i love it when that happens. I headed out to fill the bucket around 5:30 and met John down at the ramp around 7:30 armed with a full bucket of decent baits....about a dozen chubs and a dozen+ sunnies. I would like to tell you we used all the baits up.....but thats not the case.

    We set up and fought the grass all night....still lots of junk coming down the river but we did manage 3 fish. First bite was on a stomper chub....gave him a 10 count on the runoff and crossed his eyes, decent channel cat. The second bite of the night was on a stomper too....but this one walloped it and snapped the line from the clothes pin and after a 10 count crossed the eyes of an average flathead around 14 lbs.....good job on untangling the lines and clearing the road John. The last bite was on a chub again and ended up being a spunky channel cat that thought he was bigger than he really was....but well take it. So three bites, the fish landed and another good time out on the water with john.....Thanks for getting me out again dude.

  2. Another good trip in the book bro.:roll_eyes:

    What a mess on that second fish! Hahaha.:tounge_out: Tangled Power Pro:confused2:, gotta love it. I was trying to hold the fish end of the line to give ya slack to untanlge from the other rod and that sucker made a short run and almost cut me a new finger:eek:oooh:. I said "Snap that stuff" and got the ol' knifey out and your battle was able to ensue.

    Good job holding that rod high while I was clearing the other lines and rear anchor. Then I believe that is the Flattie that I landed by hand because I forgot the net? Now talk about fun and a sore thumb! Haha.

    After that 10 minutes of Shawn mahem:eek:oooh:, I got your pic, a high 5'er, and proceeded to untanlgle my legs and sandals from Power Pro from 3 cleared rods and anchor rope, complete with weeds and a smashed Chub-a lub in the carpet.

    Bite was only on for about 1/2 hour or so, then somebody flicked the switch:embarassed:. Plus Shawn forgot the Fish Whistle.:angry::smile2::smile2:

    Nice fish. At this pont, I'd be glad to be able to go out and catch some sunnies. I'm going nuts just sitting around the house!

    Just got in from a night/morning out on the river. Managed 3 flats---10#, 12# and a 25#. All of them were tore up with spawning sores. The little 10# took my rock bass, the little bugger. Got the rest on sunnies. River seemed back to normal flow where I was at.
