    Netman and I left the dealership at approx 6:30 pm and got gas and groceries. We headed out to Salt Fork regardless of storm forecasts. We spotted a member of the BOC's truck (Chris... I can't remember his last name) who had a guide trip on the way. He was in our... er... Jim's.... er.... th most well known spot it seems (they ought to just pave it) lol!

    Anyhow we had a few chubs that Jack had caught and not a lot of twilight left. We castnetted for some sparse shad, and caught a few, very few gill, but finally had enough to last the night.

    We went to a nice location and nosed into the wind.... except it kept switching from due south to southwest to west back to south. It was a challenge. Chris later said (they had put their boat ashore) that they couldn't even hear their clickers. We finally decided to find a spot out of the wind. We found a place out of the wind and set up for the night. Approx 2am Jack awoke and landed an 11lb Flathead. We also had a couple of turtle triangles place in our baits.

    I awoke at 5 am.... ok got up about 5:45 and got out the grill and fixed us up some ham and eggs.

    Sometime later we decided to vacate the lake and spend the day on the river.

    We went looking for bait and had some difficulty (had to get a jump). Bait fish was hard to find 1 4lb carp and some small baits. We loaded up and headed for the dealership to get batteries recharged. Left there and went out on 16 and crowded out some crappy fishermen at Rollo's hole. Bait likes him better than us.

    We got to the Dresden ramp as Rollo was coming in. He was gonna follow us but had engine trouble. We fished out of current area and caught 5 channels the largest being 8lb 4 oz (caught by Jack)

    Had fun but we will have better luck next time. We declined staying out the 2nd night because of the weather.

    Well at least you gave it the good try ..Congrats on staying out all night ..me and Jason contemplated about going out but we figured it would be more fun to hear about your fishing trips then to chance a wet night of no bites LOL

    Thank's for the report Shawn. Good to see you and Jack had some luck. The weather is supposed to be seasonable and stable next week. I hope to get on the river next week for my first flathead outing.:big_smile:

    We had a good time despite the numerous obstacles we encountered. One of the worse things was the absents of toast for breakfast, but I survived. Next trip I reckon it'll be my turn to burn the eggs! lol:eek:oooh::crazy::smile2::wink:

    the weather was an obstacle yesterday for myself. I found out first hand how much I appreciate an anchor man! lol...in the wind in highwater, I simply couldn't fish some areas I would have liked due to the dangers by myself. glad you guys had a good weekend, sorry about the bait situation/ was looking forward to sitting along and b/sing some with you. good news is the motor is fine now.....rollo

    Hey Bro ... I know the feeling about fishing from a boat alone ... I logged in 131 trips last year .... all by myself ... suprising how after a while you learn how to handle the boat and achors by yourself ... sometimes "ain't" easy ... but it can be done .... the worst part is when you get both anchors hung up ... then the fun begins ...... Garry- ... :eek:oooh::eek:oooh::eek:oooh:

    ANge, Shawn was a chef in a past life. He don't burn or overcook anything. Last fall he served up the best burgers I ever ate durring a snow/sleet squall while fishing in the middle of the Muskingum lol.

    Thanks for the kudos, but my wife is the cook. I just carry a grill with a busted handle with me. I cook everything too fast, love lowrys seasoning salt and cause 5 alarm... well at least the fire department keeps an eye out if I am in their area. :wink:
