Jackrabbit Start, Tortoise finish!

We hit the Mississippi this weekend.......We hit out first spot, a proven spot, and I had a flatty in the boat in 7 minutes! We thought it was going to be a great night, but we never had another run ALL NIGHT! This ever happen to annyone else? Or is it just my bad luck?

Yeah, that happens now and then, it's crazy. Saturday I thought I'd try for flatheads after filling my shootout quota for channels...threw a bullhead on it, and threw it out. Not 2 minutes later I had what I assume was a flathead (it came unbuttoned halfway to the boat). I thought "oh wow, this is going to be a hot action night". I had dreams of walking away with that huge flathead prize of 30-some dollars, plus bragging rights. This was going to be a many-fish night, for sure. Well, that was at 745 pm. We fished past midnight with no other flatheads, not even a run, just some friendly turtles. Switched spots, baits, etc...no luck.

That fish I caught was just after 8 pm.........and we fished until 3:30 am different spots, depths, etc

Could it be an early evening bite right now?

There was a front that pushed through that night. It pretty much brought the fishing to a halt. It started perking back up arountd 0200

    • I gave up trying to watch it. I think the guys dog filmed it with a Go-pro strapped to his head. 
    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
