    As some of you know Mellon chickened out on our last fishing trip..He is supposed to be at my house tonight at 11:30....He was also supposed to be able to get bait which he was unable to do agin :mad: ..I got some small bait, not expecting much..I guess if he just shows up it will be a plus.

    The place I work at had a huge fish fry. This whole weekend I was tied up, but had a blast none the less :D

    I had to be there for the whole event. I'm off Monday, Tuesday, Wendsday - heading to SE Ohio to do some flatheading with a friend over there since no one wants to fish with me down here :(

    This weekend was an absoulete waste. Nothing, Nada, I guess in comparison to the reports others have or have not had, Jack & I have been lucky so far, well at least I have, poor Jack is flatheadless since early June!!!!! ;)

    A good friend once told me the best flathead fishing is during a drought. I think he was smoking crack.

    GUys, I am surprised but my buddy Jack has went easy on me. Last night in the first 1 hour+ I had a pole in the water for a total of 10 minutes. We fised directly in the casting path of a huge tree. Yeap I hit that baby good! I think there is an 11 inch crappie on a Khale hook still hanging from the branch! I was so mad, I threw the rod on thr ground & gave up for a while. After being there for about an hours & a half I had both lines in the water, then thought I had a 10 or 15 flattie, turned out to be a monster fighting Softshell. I think the turtle was between 7-10 pounds, but he was a fighter thats for sure, darn near broke the freaking Glow Stick I was using. Guess that sort of answered the question whether or not those rods would handle a 30 flattie in a river. :rolleyes:

    True............. but I didn't loose a $100 fish at the bank either!!!! :D That has to be tough. When (not if, but WHEN) I catch a big one, I will be bringing it to the scales ASAP. Get it weighed, wrote down & veriffied then I will go back out. This assures not only of a quick & secure weigh in but also it assures of a lively fish that is released. You can also make a very easy, cheap large aireator out of a billege pump & cooler. I have seen these systems mounted in Jon boats & have even seen some of the six foot coolers mounted like this. A six foot cooler should be able to hold any cat you'd be able to catch in Ohio!!!!! :B

    How on earth are people only catching 3 & 4 pounds of catfiah & winning these tourneys? When I have fished Logan for cats, I've only been skunked once I think & we usually manage a 7 or 8 pounder, in addition to the small ones. I guess I'm going to have to enter the tourtneys & show you guys how its done. :D I juts hate giving up a potential river night to fish a lake, but I'm going to have to do it! :B

    I would rather be skunked on a river than fish a lake...LOL
