    Chad and I were given a flathead clinic Friday night.
    It was cold for those of us not reeling in a fish every 20
    minutes or so.

    Mikes channel cats aren't in this photo or the big
    flathead that got off after a 10 minute fight. The
    wind and rain made it tough but Mike kept it interesting.

    Unless global warming kicks in this may be my last trip this year.

    I did manage one little flathead that got by Mike.
    It may not be too cold for flathead but it sure is too cold for me!

  4. man thats a nice haul of fish! if you get the right conditions this late in the year you can catch a bunch of flatties. the conditions i favor were just right fri night but i had to do a halloween party with the GF:eek: . i'd say we have another 2 weeks of flattie fishing over here in SW Ohio, hopefully 3 weeks. water temps are still around 60 degrees on the GMR.

    Way to go guys. Your showing you can kick out butts in the Spring, Summer & Fall.

    Are you guys going after the mamouth Channels this winter on the Manotoba, (I think that's the river system)?
     
  6. Was that the Ohio river? and what did you use as bait

    Nice job guys or should I say Mike:). You sure know how to find em. Congrats. One question what depth of water are you fishing? I ask because I would like to target them with a fly. I have caught some decent chanels on the fly but never a flat. I figured if located in the right water it might be worth a shot. Salmonid maybe you chime in on that one. Thanks and congrats. S
     
  9. Congrats thats a sick night of fishing. What did that big one in the pic end up going? Just glad to hear there is someone who can catch more Flatties than Robbie!! Great job Mike!
