I guess you really can't say those were bad nights (pics added)

19 posts in this topic

That was the quote of the night tonight.

The bite was on for us the past two nights boating 17 fish and over 350 pounds!

Those fish included a 52,38,36,32,28,25,25,23,21,20 and a handful of smaller ones.

The water temp was 73 to 74 degrees, and the first roughed up flats of the year were caught meaning that the spawn is probably getting under way.

Water has dropped a couple of feet and the river is looking good. Hopefully the bite will stay hot for a few more days. As long as the weather holds, I think it should.

Hopefully I can get some rest here and post some pics of some of the larger fish tomorrow sometime.

I agree Darren, some of the best catfishing I have ever seen. Monster fish and plenty of them. And to figure we also broke off on a few.

As I stated in the boat, not a great night but not a bad one either.

yeah, I'm really going to start paying more attention to my line. I've never had so many break-offs.

I can only attribute it to a few things.

Fishing in rocks that create nicks

Worn from age/use

Worn from sinker

Nick caused from unknown source

My hunch is that it's just from plain old getting used a lot. Once I stripped off a few yards, the line looked better and no more break-offs.

Maybe after every 50-75 flatheads you should get new line....or every 3rd 50 pounder.... wink

Add in a few breakoffs on snags, a couple bullies firing off when one doesn't release the spool on the reel before casting, a few bullies getting knocked off on wood while repositioning bait, a couple breakoffs on fish, etc...

and to think that was all from the same one guy whistle

not to mention the same guy having a wardrobe malfunction grin

BTW, there was another Samsquatch sighting last night. I need to take a look at the photo I got, I may have to add some shading to make it PG-13 wink

Up with Samsquatch. What a sighting it was.

I will be taking some of my line off the reel before tonight. No more break offs for me. Yes, the monkey. He can ride along with me anytime.

    • Sounds like the Preds and Pens were also hot after him so we won the bidding war, that would explain the price. We might end up facing the Preds in the first round so better we have him than them. Don't know much about Hanzel but from what I am reading he is big, good face off & pk guy and contributes a little offence. Maybe not a huge upgrade over Haula but having him on the 4th could be huge for us if him and Stewart can get something going. White looks kind of like a depth 4th liner so there is that as well. Should be a fun rest of the season, always fun to get new toys around March even if they haven't worked out in the past.
    •   And yet more credible than Trump:  
    •   Paradox : BD2 and an open mind.
    • It's been going on for years. Just look at how many times the Howard Stern show has pranked the news with fake guests.
    • Maybe some people feel a  lbgt,, black lives matter, sierra club, feminist, white guilt, supported candidate better represents them than say an NRA endorced candidate.
    •    I think they do as good of a job as to be expected. Pills are highly regulated. International web deliveries and dirty doctors are a little tricky to weed out.      Nope, we'll use your logic and decriminalize driving under the influence.   Problem solved.   Should eradicate fatalities of those types as since it is legal, it no longer appeals to folks, they stop doing it.     Explain in detail, in a country, filled with people who love over consumption, that consume 80% of the drugs on the entire planet, how that would work.   Start stuttering.     That's about right. One word in depth answers.   On an idea that will not work in this country.   "I think we can learn that we should stop being reflexively opposed when someone else does [decriminalize] and should take seriously the possibility that anti-user enforcement isn't having much influence on our drug consumption," says Mark Kleiman, author of the forthcoming When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment and director of the drug policy analysis program at UCLA. Kleiman does not consider Portugal a realistic model for the U.S., however, because of differences in size and culture between the two countries.   http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html        It's your idea, you explain it and sell it.   You lazy fraud.
    • Wowza, I guess we are going for, no better year I suppose. We are now crazy deep at center and that is a good good thing, hopefully the new guys can mesh with the lineup right away.
    • So much fun to watch the media just lose all credibility, I suspect there will be more fun to come.

    • I think he means keep the prisons full and the private prison industry in money at all costs. Welcome to the wonderful world of donor $$$ "trumping" common sense. Nothing like buying laws so you can profit, not that this is anything new.
