Fullstringer & I got out on Saturday and had less than an eventful night. The gar were terrible but Andy managed to boat a small female flathead ~5 pounds. She was a little beat-up so they've finally begun the spawning process up this way...she still had her eggs though. We did get to see two bald eagles and a beaver the size of a volkswagen beetle! Tonight, BOC newbie "snakeslayer" (I don't think he's posted) and I went to the same spot. The gar weren't as bad tonight and I actually landed one...not sure that's a good thing LOL! I also caught a very nice channel (~5.5 pounds). We had some other hits & both missed a flathead. The one hit a big live BLG about 2 mintues after it was cast out. The beast doubled over the rod and actually pulled the boat sideways. Brecken missed the fish b/c the circle hook actually turned back & went through the gill again. The flattie probably never had much on an opportunity to get hooked. It doubled that rod & pulled the boat just by crushing the gill's head in his mouth. Man those flatties are tough! All three of us are back out again on Thursday...hopefully with some pics to post!
