    Steve and i went out again tonight to see if we could have any luck. Steve caught the first fish which was a 22.5 pound flathead which was a great fish. But the good news out of it was that it was a spawned out female with the scratches healing on her head. I gave steve alittle grief about this fish because it was 3 ounces short of the best of the year. The next fish i took, it was a 6.5 pound flathead, also was a female that had healing scrapes. We sat there with nothing happening when that little flathead screamed my abu, it scared the hell out of me. We hit a calm spot there for about an hour and a half. Then steve got a run had the fish on but came off in the direction of my abu, i re-casted out and within 5 minutes my clicker was singing the loudest we have heard all year. It was a 15.9 pound flathead which interesting enough had a fresh gash in her mouth and was bleeding pretty good. Im convinced it was the fish steve lost. Well it was a good night and i cant wait to get out again.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That 15# did exactly that,came off my hook and went right after yours. It was a good night on the river.can't wait to get out again and bust some more. Hey Nate,this is the first time in like five trips that we didn't catch a turtle.

    I think the wife and I will be hitting some spot on the GMR tonight. Not excatlly sure where yet, but it should be fun just to get out. Last time out she got one over 20#, so maybe the luck will pass to me this time. :eek: ;)

  9. All I know is the water levels hear in columbus are low. Hoover is down most spots we fish I think if you can jump good you can make to the side.

    Man you guys are killin em this year, Congrats! Up here the bite in Columbus weve been doing OK but nothing like the sizes ya are catching. Do you guys use bullheads exclusively?
     
  12. That is the truth steel. It is real slow at hoover an alum. Have you been fishing any of the rivers.

    no we use all types of bait shad, suckers, bluegills. We like to take a variety so if they are hitting on one thing hopefully we have it

    I wasnt sure about Flaties in the Tipp City area becasue I've always heard that they are basically all but gone north of West Carrollton. I may have to try this little area in Tipp that I know for Flats one time.

    i have always heard they dont get above dayton because of all the low head dams. But i find it hard to believe theres not 4th or 5th generation flatties up in tipp and other areas, becuase we know the flatheads were there before. And i have even seen flatheads in the stillwater above the englewood dam
