Looking back on flats (many pics)

4 posts in this topic

Getting ready to head out tonight, and the possibility of storms, is getting me excited. The last time I was out flattin' in storms it was good. But that got me thinking about just how many flatheads we have caught this year, just thought I would compile a bunch of fish in one spot for comparison.

First fish of the year, a nice 13lber.

Followed shortly by this 16lber.

Another 16lber

The capper of the night for me, 21lbs.

Also witnessed this dandy 28lber.

After a little while we (Tyler and I) finally made it out together. This time Tyler was the lucky one.

16lber

Even caught this on a bullie, 26" long.

In the dead middle of the spawn we decided it would be a wise idea to try it again, well this fish graced us with it's presence with in 5 minutes of setting up.

And this 5lber.

Hope you all enjoy these pics! It just gets me fired up to think that last year we had barely even broke into the first fish of the year yet! And now this year we have all that behind us. Keep in mind, not one fish is duplicated in the pics above, all are different.

Nice fish. I really gotta try cattin' more. Only made it out for the get together this year and it was fun. Would love to hit those bad boys like that though.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
    • Kinda like the Eskimo thread on I.S. some years back?
