28 lb. Flathead last night

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I know this is my first post but what the heck. I'm here on a business trip from CO and we went out looking for some cats last night. We landed and released a 28 pound flattie on cut sucker meat! Only a few bites all night but it was worth it...here are some pics of my fishing buddy with the fish:

Nice work Glom. How'd you go about setting the trip up and where did you go to? Maybe we should arrange some trip swaps...You come here for flats and we'll go to CO for elk, trout, etc. smile

I set the trip up by going to the company travel web site and making my reservations!! I get back to the area 4 or 5 times a year and fish whenever I can. I was born and raised here... Colorado is pretty dang nice though.

Had a 25 lb Flathead, which was my first good size Catfish and also my personal best largest Gamefish. Definitely fun pulling these 20+ out of the river and the guys 100 feet down river had a 29 lb Flathead just about an hour before mine.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
