When do the flatheads typically shut down around these parts? Late September?

I usually hang the rods up for the season when the cottonwoods start droppn leaves. That might be pushing it further than others, but I dont waterfowl hunt so I try and squeeze as much out of the season as I can. I suppose going off water temp would be a more technical method.

For me, the Sturgeon season interrupts a fair portion of the fall flathead bite, then before you know it, I'm bouncing jigs again until the river is solid and then on to drilling holes again smirk

Let me tell you guys, it's been a great year for me! I made sure to put my time and went out earlier than everyone else and found the fish. Now that I am moved away from the river, it is very depressing but I know that I had one heck of a season in Kato this spring and summer. I will still be hitting the river occasionally when I can but it won't be like before when it was 3-4 times a week.

And for when I hang up the Cat rods...usually once it is too unbearably cold outside is when I call it quits. Last year I fished through most of October and then was done. This year I'll be doing some small game hunting so may not hit it hard in October like last year.

Yeah hats off to you and Nutter this year for vanguarding the Flat season on the Minn this spring. You guys were out there early/often pushing the season forward maybe getting some of us old turds out in the cold earlier than what we really wanted to. laugh.

Was there even a fishing pole in the boat? That seemed more Nitro Circus than Tony Dean Outdoors. wink

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
