KOTC Flathead Upgrade - 4 June - It's a Beaut

22 posts in this topic

I got a big, beautiful St Croix Flathead to upgrade my flathead score tonight. A guy cannot take a day off or you get run over by the KOTC upgrade bus the next morning. I got a 44" X 27" flathead for a 71 point fish. That should bump my score up another 10 points to 219. Now if Jake and Elwood relax for a few days maybe I can catch up on my sleep.

I got this beauty on a Jumbo 7" bullhead. That bullhead was one tough critter. I had hooks in the water at 1945 and I used this big bullhead because he was so fiesty. At 2005 he got hammered by a fish but he dropped him before I could get a hookset. When I checked him out he was pretty well mauled but still kicking so out he went again. At 2145 this beautiful 41 lb St Croix flathead decided to make him supper. You just have to love a good bullhead for a flathead bait.

Every time I get a call from Steve at say around 10pm, I know I’m in store for good news!

Congrats again Steve!

If I make it over in the near future, I’m bringing 4 rods and you can sit and listen to the twins while I play catch up. smile

Yeah, good question. I bet he didn't go out for a third adventure.

That bullie was nowhere to be found when I netted the fish. He did have some nasty bullhead breath though.

I can't even think of a good response to that right now. I'll just respond by waiting for you to cast, then putting my bait where it'll cut off all the good fish before they get to your bullhead tonight. Too bad for you, because there's a 50 pounder out there.

Funny stuff grin You two crack me up.

Best laugh (still chuckle today grin) is when WWG brought up the moment from a year or two back about the awkward feeling he had when asking aanderud to apply bug spray to his back in the dark and alone together on the river.

"Can you do my back buddy" laugh

I think it was a thread about awkward man moments after a big fish is caught. My mind is not clear but I think it was started by Hanson talking about the "man hug" after a big fish is boated. grin

Ah Good Times!

As long as it is aerosol I will do a buddy's back. You need to be able to depend on each other. Remember, that's the guy who's gonna net your fish!

But if you're talking a skintastic lotion or something like that, then I'm sorry buddy, but I don't like you that way.... 'mkay? blush

Nothing wrong with a "Man Hug"!

Now rubbing any kind of liquid onto another man is crossing some kind of line.

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
