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.

    • Nope, they've always been much too spineless to receive my vote.   I've always been more libertarian minded, but without the crazy parts. You have to include human and societal behavior into the equation to get ideals to actually work in the real world.      
    • 34 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY today and I am eating strawberries and drinking lemonade, more about that later. Wednesday I did make it to the Resort and I spent the afternoon relaxing. I went in search of Elmer as I saw his truck parked out back. I went up to his room and tapped on the door only to hear what I thought was a loud grunt. I took that to mean "Come in" and so I did. I opened the door and was hit by a wall of heat. Elmer was sitting in a wood rocking chair, with a book in hand looking over a pair of cheater reading glasses at me. "Close the door" he commanded and I did. "Sit" he said and I did in an overstuffed chair in front of the window where a stream of sunshine was pouring into the room.   I sat back deep in the chair and relaxed. I let out some air and sat back even deeper into the cushions and I told myself this is what I was needing. I spoke out loudly to Elmer "Wife call?" And Elmer nodded his head yes. I then closed my eyes and just relaxed, Elmer already knew why I was there. I was almost ready for a nap when I felt then saw a hardback book fall into my lap. I reached down and picked it up and saw it was the new Clive Clusser book that I had bought Elmer for Christmas. I know this because I has written inside the book "Merry Christmas Elmer from Bobby." Also inside the book was a punch card from the Masterbaiters Shop for suckers, I think it was being used as a book marker. The book had not been read yet and I looked at Elmer and he said "Knock yourself out" When I bought the book for Elmer I was going to buy myself a copy to but had not gotten around to it.   I opened the book up and bent back the hard book covers slowly and then I went through the book every hundred pages or so and bent them back. This is how you break the binder on a hardback book without breaking the book. I heard the tapping of a glass on wood and I looked up to see Elmer offering me a empty glass and he said "Open the little fridge" and I did. Inside I found a cold carton of pink lemonade and a plastic container of strawberries. I took them both out and set them down on the little wood table between us. "Well pour" Elmer said and so I did. A few minutes later I was a few pages into Clives book and I was sipping on cold lemonade, eating strawberries in a warm room that was no longer hot with sunshine on my shoulders in a place far far away. Just the way I wanted to be the day before a visit to the hospital   I spent the afternoon and went late into the evening reading until I was done with the book. I closed it with a satisfied feeling like all of Mr. Clusser’s books leave me with. Strawberries and lemonade were long gone but it did not stop me from tipping my glass over my open mouth where I hoped I might get just one last drop but I did not. I said good night to Elmer and went down stairs where Chuck gave me a ride back to the cabin. Today finds me writing this story with a bowl of strawberries close at hand and a glass of lemonade. Not the same as summer but good enough for this time of year.   Sunshine Ray is a little off in his forecast. I did go to the hospital in sunny weather and I got all my tests done in record time. Every department I went to there was no waiting and I zipped right through. Today finds me in the den and although Ray’s forecast called for clouds he missed out on the rain that has been falling. Sitting here I can hear the water coming off the eves to make splattering sounds as it hits the snow on the ground. Ice dams on the roofs are gone, each time one slides off the roof Duncan starts barking and running around the cabin. Glad they are off the roof and even better they have come down when no one is beneath them to get hurt. Ray also forgot to mention that when it is not raining the snow fog moves in and if and when it gets cold out we are going to have ice every where here at Lake Iwanttobethere

    • I've never watched one of these parades before........... it's so weird. Some funny arse signs in the crowds. At least they could have had some clowns throwing candy to kids. It's not like there is a shortage of clowns in DC.
