We got some small channels out of the gate. Then had one of the closest lightning strikes in my life go off next too us. Then we were trapped in the pouring rain for two hours. Tough night when the fishing shut down after that.

Thanks to all that stayed out last night in the rain. It was a tough bite once again, but some people were able to put fish in the boat. A special thanks to my boat partners last night Karl & Brandy for sticking it out against horrific odds.

from what has been submitted, we are in a position to announce the winners and they are:

Flatheads:

1st place goes to Ryan with one at 36.5 X 22

2nd place goes to Joe with one at 31 X 17

Channel cats:

1st place goes to Jake with a nice 33 X17

2nd place goes to Joe with a 26.5 X 13.5

Thanks once again to all that took part, and hope your drying out nicley.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
