    Was a great afternoon and and night last night. I beat my old best record twice. The fish were definately on the bite for us. Used bluegills, crappie, and a small channel cat I caught fishing for bait. My buddy and I decided to give it a try since we had never been there, looks like we'll be back. We also got a 12 lb and 2 channels. All were released after pics taken.

    We had our lines set 12-18 inches, using ballons as bobbers. Don't know water temp but bathwater was what it felt like. Found a nice big dead tree where bottom drops fast and we had 3 lines out around it. Not sure on lake depth, deeper than our arm and oar depthfinder went. We had 2 other nice ones on and they wrapped the tree and broke off.

    Did you catch any flats while there was still light or did you take those pics the next morning?

    I got the first one about 9-930 pm and they came about 1 1/2 - 2 hours apart all night. We took the first pic in the boat, he was last one caught about 8 in the morn. He gave a big flip and about spilled me so we moved to the bank for rest of pics.
