46# Beautiful St Croix Flathead KOTC Entry

15 posts in this topic

When the bite is on you had better chase it. I finally got two KOTC flathead entries last night so I hit the same spot again tonight looking for that elusive 3rd KOTC entry. I got a late start and didn't have hooks in the water until 2100 but I guess I timed it about right. At 2130 this beautiful 46" X 28" flathead nailed my bullhead and after a mighty tussle into the net he went and his stats will go on my 3rd Flathead KOTC entry.

This should put me in the Green but probably not for long if the bite stays this way. Now it is upgrade time - I'm going to hit it hard for the next couple of weeks and try to upgrade my other flathead entries.

We waited a long time for this weather and these river conditions. It is cat fishing time, my friends.

Three things that I can count on, Death, Taxes and Steve catching a big Croix Kitty.

Great job Steve!

With as knowledgeable about these fish as Steve is, I knew he would be one of the first to put a monster in the boat. The past never lies.

Give her heck Steve. smile

Saw a decent nice ice breaker come in the boat last night unfortunately it was not mine. Next time though or maybe yet tonight.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
