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 seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
