Should have stayed home...

10 posts in this topic

In retrospect, we had no business being on the river fishing last night. I'd like to think we could make a smart decision when dangerous weather threatens, but when you got flatheaditis bad, logical thinking won't prevail.

The night started out on a good note, ducking for cover!

"I am Cornholio!" grin

Rain was pounding down at a good clip but this flathead still wanted to come out and play with Aanderud.

38" x 26" = 29lbs

**KOTC upgrade points for Aanderud!**

It was decided a move was in order after catching that fish so we motored to a new spot with lightning showing us the way. After getting the baits in the water, it was cell phone weather radar time. We were so going to get killed by the orange & red blobs moving our way. It appeared there was a small gap in the storm line that we "might" slip through so we kept at it.

Was a good idea as this girl bit shortly after that...

42" x 28" = 38lbs

Another look... this fish got tangled up in the line and came into the boat green, at which point she decided to chew all the skin off the back of my left hand. Note the blood! It hurts worse than it looks, trust me. Nothing like taking a wood wrasp and scraping it across the back of your knuckles. From now on, the spot will forever be known as "Knuckles 38". grin

Was a fun time guys and it was nice to get home early for a change and catch up on sleep. Early = 1:30am. grin

Nice fish. I thought about going out but the weather kept me home. I guess I don't have that flathead bug that bad yet.

I was out in henderson last night. I decided to pack it in when the 9 pm siren went off early and stayed on. I did manage one fish before leaving.

Any upgrades Tom?

WWG upgraded by a couple pts with a beauty 31lb fish.

The fish wouldn't let us leave last night. We decided to try something different and after sitting at a usual spot all night we instead scouted around and tried some spots that neither of us has fished this year.

I guess it was a good idea with 7 fish boated:

31,25,25,16,15,10,5

Should be a good time out there for Moores Contest on Sat

Nope, very slow night without one run. Tonight maybe better with a new spot to hit closer to you. I figure after two skunks in a row, you know the saying.
