When life give you lemons, you make lemonade.

So has been the fishing for Flatheads lately for me. Instead of getting down on it, I've been taking what the river gods will give me.

In this case it's been Channels, lots of them, and nice ones too.

Last night was no exception with several nice fish caught. We experimented with some different bait combinations, including some manufactured "Food Source" baits. They seemed to prefer one in particular and I can't wait to try it again for the BP Cat League.

Here's a couple nicer ones of the night:

I just get grumpy, take my boat, and go home. Darren, on the other hand, keeps hitting it.

Nice fish. Sounds like you had a good night!

Darren - I just ordered some Food Source bait. Which one did you have the best results with? I ordered 1 package of each of the Big Cat Meal; the Catfish Bites; and the Cut Bait. With the local bait store closed I figured if I ever got in a bind for bait this could maybe save the day.

Sorry Steve, my post was not very clear. In addition to the Food source, we were trying other things as well. I had about 4 varieties of the Food Source and I only had a chance to try the "blood" bait. I think they are all the Cut Bait style. It did get hit, but we were trying all kinds of things.

There is an article in this past years In-Sider that gave some pretty good reviews of the Food Source.

Nice channels Darren. Seems like about this time last year we were into them pretty thick down here as well.

    • 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.
