I shared the boat with crazyice and another buddy last night on Pool 5. First time I've ever chassed flatties on pool 5. First spot looked great on google earth and in person, but no fish. We didn't have a plan B after a brief discussion and recollecting some past readings/research/tips/etc we landed on spot 26.

5 minutes after casting out at our new spot I got hit by this 26.4lber.

She wasn't done with the spawn quite yet and made major mess in my recently cleaned boat.

I felt bad for her loosing some spawn in the boat, but once we realized she was leaking we got her back in the water immediately.

Not 2 minutes after getting my line back in the water I got hit on my other rod and lost it half way to the boat.

Ended up with 4 total flatties last night with 3 being dinks. Also got a surprise right before we packed it up.

17" Sauger

Wow, those eggs are huge! ANd I can't believe that sauger ate a bullie that is 30% or more of his weight/length. That's crazy.

Nice job boating a handful and a good sized one! Hardly anyone is getting the 20 pounders or better lately!

I got one last night that as soon as I pulled the hook out, "bam" the release began grin.

It would have been my third flat registerd, but when those eggs are rolling out (minus the mess), I would rather get them back quick and thats what we did. Plus it was no fish that would have got me any wheres on the KOTC.

Great images Tyler. Maybe a good boat cleaning is the trick to pick up the bite in the boat grin It kind of seemed to work for me.

Same reason the sauger looks smaller than 17 inches. It's all in the hold. I've seen some 12 pound cats that look like 30 pounders because of the way they're held.

I still can't believe how much eggs is in that boat! They're huger huge!

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
