    pendog66 It swims its bait

    I went out tonight with Mark and Steve. The bite was slow and it didnt help we had some idiots think they were on survivor building a fire and making a lot of noise. Before dark i took around a 2 or 3 pound channel. Later i caught a 7 pound flathead and 4.10 pound flathead. Steve ended up taking a 6.6 pound flathead and later missed a good one. i wish we could of seen it. He also caught a snapping turtle at the end of the night on a bluegill when we got fed up after both missing runs. It was a decent night but with the cooler weather and having people making a lot of noise we didnt do too bad. And it was great fishing with you again mark we will get out again soon. Heres the pics, also Steves son caught his first turtle it was just alittle guy.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I think we would have done better if we didn't have the red neck Bear Gryll's over there making all kinds of noise. I wish we could have seen the one I missed,it was over 20 I would guess. Mark we will all have to get out again. Was glad to see my son catch his first turtle,but he is really wanting his first catfish,hopefully it will be soon.

    I agree Nate. if you want to find a good spot then go out and fish,prospect places and learn the waters. If you know what to look for you will find good places to fish

    NO IT DIDNT!

    I got one awhile later and it was bad but no where near as bad as that NASTY thing Dink had.

    We got 2 turtles luckily neither were eastern spiny softshells like you guys were catching. I would rather mess with a snapper then those stupid things

    I agree. Snappers can actually sometimes put up a nice fight. My son's 20#+ from the GMR last yeat almost pulled him over the boat. Talk about mad, boy that thing was mad! It bit a hole in my net. I dont know if the net was weak or what, but it actually bit it in a couple places while I was trying to get a pic of my son & the turtle. :eek:

    lol yeah they can be a handful. I caught one last year in the GMR that was the size of a garbage can lid and was mean as hell. At one point i yelled at it cuz it was trying to bite us. " IF YOU KEEP MOVING YOUR SOUP!!!!!" lol

    its more that a pellet gun,he hit dink with a stink bomb....lol
     
  19. you guys missed it....... tried to convince Bryan to let me show him the way i grab a softshell by the neck so you can get your hook back, this being after he caught one. well, 'ol Bryan says "no way man!" and proceeds to take this "Rodney King" sized flashlight and beat the hell out of this turtles noggin trying to dislodge the hook. man that poor turtle was taking a classic LAPD beat-down! i couldnt stand to see the turtle go through the molestation anymore so i took it off for him....bloody nose and all!

    I must admit that I did do that!I hate those things & they need thinned out. Ole dink, the PETA Person that he is couldnt stand it. He begged and begged for the poor stinky creature to be released. :p Okay, well it may not have been that bad, but I was hoping that I could knock the side of his head and have the hook come out or tear out or something.

    Oh yea.... I'll post the pics tonight.
