    Myself, TCBA1987 and wife went to Will's Creek for Cats.....Also meeting us there was catfish_hunter..........

    Surprisingly, I started the night out with a Flathead nearly 25 lbs. Great way to start the night at 7:22 Fish through the night with several good hits/runs. Lost a flattie that prob was about 12-13 lbs and also landed a 9lb 6oz flathead. TCBA also caught a 7 lb flattie that was his first in a long time. All the fish were healthy looking and of course were released.

    We also had easily 6-8 runs where we would actually fight the fish for a short time and the fish would basically spit the bait out. When we reeled the bait in, you would never have even known there was a fish on the line just to see the bait. We were not the only ones it was happening to.

    Catfish_hunter also caught a mussel on a small chub I believe. Also, we were not the only ones who had that happen. One other guy said he caught one on a chub, and another guy caught one on worms....I think he said worms.

    I don't know about you pro's, but that was a pretty good night for me. The fish were full of fight! :B

    Hey Thanks a lot! Like i said, I am not the pro, but have caught what I think to be nice Flathead's.... Would like a 30 lber again this year, but I know I have to wait it out. Just a shame that so many people have been taking so many huge fish out lately. Then ask me why I release my fish.....I tell them so that way some dumb___ can catch them another day and kill them.....That usually gets them to just give the I'm dumb stare. :D

    I don't know about that, but I would like to meet up with him some day to fish for some flatties! I am an amatuer and a young "punk", but I love to fish and would like to fish with some more OGF buddies!


    H2O, I may be up for a boat ride if yours is half empty......I do know a good area to try for Flatties that you need a boat to get to!
