Great night tonight......

7 flats and one channel all on bullheads.

Flats ranged from 25 inches to 42.5 inches.

Audemp got the big fish in the boat with a 42.5 by 24.5 that topped the scales at just over 31 pounds......

Dave got a real nice 30 inch channel that weighed 12 pounds.

I got 3 flats with two counting as KOTC upgrades.....

Wish I could get out Friday or Saturday night but I have work until very late, but Sunday night I will be out looking for some 40" fish.

Got my Abu Garcia rigged with 80 lb. PowerPro and 10/0 Gamakatsu Octopus hook so I'm ready to go. Now just gotta go catch some bullheads for then.

....and I was reminded via text every time a fish was boated frown

I went out for a couple hours last night and picked up a smaller one.

Nice job John!! We ended up staying till about 3am and boated 3 fish and missed two...It ended up being Al's first time out flathead fishing and within 15 minutes of starting the night he hooks into something BIG...This beast whatever it was took him into the current and hunkered down and wouldn't come up at all...so we lifted the anchor and took the boat over top of him and made a little head ground but all it would do is shake its head but not come off bottom....after about 10-15 minutes being directly over him it came unbuttoned! cry So we took this as a good sign to get onto some fish....I hooked up first with a little KOTC upgrade, then about an hour later Al hooks up with his first flat going about 20lbs! He was definitely pumped...and the last fish of the night was by our captain Andy who boated a beautiful eye' on a lively bully whistle great night to be on the river......oh and John the boat is definitely not too clean anymore she got broke in proper to the river wink... Here are the pics:

Thanks WWG for the great and postive report. Makes anyone who is heading down tonight feel good. smile Nice fish guys!

This beast whatever it was took him into the current and hunkered down and wouldn't come up at all...so we lifted the anchor and took the boat over top of him and made a little head ground but all it would do is shake its head but not come off bottom....after about 10-15 minutes being directly over him it came unbuttoned!

I have had something like this happen on Pool 2 a couple years back. In the end I figured it was just a log (or something) in the current getting stuck on junk as I pulled it free and it rolled/moved grin

I also have video from last year about this time I should dig up now that I have the "bleep" editing capabilities for video grin This one was on the MN river around this time in high/fast/strong current and was only about 5-7 minutes long. It was my fish of the year and with a couple shakes of the head at the surface, ten feet behind the boat, it was gone. I still can feel the feeling in my hands of when its head shook and the hooked popped out. I am not sure how big it was (maybe not as big as I would have liked it to be) because it went from the edge of the snag out in the main current in strong current. Then to top off that night (around 9:00pm), 10 minutes later the tornado sirens went off. Not a big deal, but then came the lightning and as soon as we hit the launch, then the massive down pour while loading. Driving home after this, soaking wet, I can remember it like it was yesterday. That’s when Dtro was kind enough to inform me of cells phones having weather radar on them. If i had known, I could have seen the storm was going to pass after about 20-30 and how it turned into a beautiful night smirk.

    • well the seeds were planted four days ago and to my surprise when I checked them this morning they had already germinated. I will wait awhile before I tell you who was the winner.. Empirical testing at its best!
    • the make knives to cut them smaller!!!!!!!
    • Riiiiight... How come they didn't produce this document 8 years ago...
    • I would have started out at a young age, teaching them right from wrong. And that regardless of their gender tell them that I love them. When you make a mistake, you own up to it and be accountable. You do the crime, you do the time. And I that I still love them.
    • I thought you were AGAINST fake news now?
    • That's a good little tip.  I'll have to give it a try.  
    • I may not be an economist but it doesn't take a genius to realize that accumulating debt at the rate we are now accumulating it is a recipe for disaster. Debt is more than doubling every 8 years. There is no sign that debt accumulation will even slow down in the future and there is definitely no indication that we will start paying it down, unless you believe the Donald when he said he was going to eliminate debt in 8 years before he said he wasn't going to do that any more.   As Purple indicated above if you are OK with saddling your grandchildren with all of the debt that your and my generations accumulated and can sleep well at night then good for you. I think the party of accountability should start holding someone accountable but you and they just want to continue kicking the can down the road. What do you care? You won't live forever, right? Might as well let someone else worry about it.   Are all government policies rooted in fact? Everything that you or the party that you constantly support proposes is able to be defended by facts? What about all the morality laws, nothing based from religion is factual. Are abortion laws based on facts? How do you know if a woman should have ultimate control of their body? What are the facts that support it? How about gay rights laws? What facts do you have that support not allowing gay couples the same rights as heterosexual couples? What are the facts that support it being a bad idea that I buy a car or a 6 pack of beer on Sundays in Minnesota?   There are plenty of laws and Policies that are enacted by all types of politicians that are unable to be defended with facts.
    • Geez...we must fish the same lakes  Both of these posts above have become common now that "ice castling" has become the latest fad and everyone and their mother is on the ice.  There is an abnormally large % of those with the shiny new toy who chose only to save money on their generator, but spend as much as they possibly can on their truck and fish house.  I can spot them from a mile away...3-4 guys get out of the truck, they circle around the fish house a few times wondering how to get it lowered to the ice, then they finally figure it out, and 2 of the guys offload the residential home backup generator and carry it 100 yards away, 150 pulls later they get it fired up, and I only know because it's so loud it rattles the dishes in my cabinets.
