    H2O Mellon Hangin' With My Gnomies

    I'm back. Bye the way Jack, I miss you, Wayne doesn't do a good job of taking pictures! I still love ya Jack! Sort of funny how much talking you can do about the old highschool or college days & ex girlfriends, etc..... :p But again Jack, it can't compare to climbing down rock cliffs & netting fish for you! :D Actually the day started off bad, we couldnt catch chubs or bluegills as I think it was just too hot. We only managed one Rockbass. We (actually Wayne) bought 1/2# of goldfish 1/2# of Chubs. We got out around 7PM, did some sight seeing, motor ran PERFECT! Wow what a shock, Trolling Motor ran PERFECT! We couldnt catch any bait fish on the GMR either. Started catting one spot just before dark, had lots of tutle runs, no fish, switched to a spot that just looked like paradise according to the depthfinder/fish finder. 7ft, 9 ft, 24 ft...... 7 ft, 8 ft, can you say BIG HOLE! Ended up catching 2 Channels & 1 Flathead. The pictures suck, sorry. The largest Channel was I think 9.8 lbs, then a 6 pound Channel, this a very nice looking young Flathead, just shy of 5 pounds, but what a nice looking fish. Thats my 1st ever GMR Flathead.

    I need some help, I was trying to have Wayne take a picture of it, but if you by my index finder you will see a big round mass on the 1st cat, is this from spawning? It had one on each side, plus this cats head so freakin huge, again sorry but you cant tell from the pic, is this from spawning also?

    The Channels were caught on live goldfish, the flat on a cut rockbass head. Yea go figure..... Channels on live & the flat on cut. The pics say 5/26/05, but it should say 6/26/05. Not a great night or even a good night, but it beats staying home & catching nothing.

    Sell it to me! Last night did feel odd, no long walk, no being tired from carrying the gear, no FRESH SHAD, most noticeable, no bitching about getting :S ! :D In other words, it just didnt feel right. :p

    No bitching about getting Skunked?????.Man you know if they aint 10-lbs they aint a fish..So you did get skunked..I got my money back on the canoe, dont feel like hauling it around by myself.
     
  6. The round mass might be related to the bulging eyes and gaping mouths. It could be due to the two handed "death grip" you have on the fish. ;)

    Those things were almost unholdable they were so slippery, the Flat was fine but those Channels were unreal . I wish I had a better camera man, those roud spots were strange.
