    yep, DIP picked one spot out of 5 we looked at and within an hour my outside rod bent then burried. Of course I figured maybe a 10 lber but din't even guess a flat till it's tail broke surface. Then it decided to run drag which was good as it gave DIP time to climb down the mountain of boulders with the net.Dip got a small channel there and after about 4 hours or so we moved to another spot and that is where I got the 7 and two small channels. Thanks for the guide service dip. Kind of hard to figure out sometimes why one guy could be 15 ft. from another and he catches the fish. Oh well, Dip is getting used to it I think. ;)

    could have but settled for shaky hands and a big ol' grin.

    If the weather guys would have been close to correct we would have both of both boated flats as Dip would have brought his boat most likely.

    anyway a successful trip for me anyway. Can't wait to fish it out of a boat.

    Way to go Bill!

    Fished this weekend with no flathead runs and only channel cats biting.

    Plan on a couple of weeks taking my bride fishing for channel cats and then on to the the flathead fishing.

    Thats right! PLus those rod holders helped me land my big flathead, which oh yea, by the way is BIGGER THAN FISHMAN's PB! SO are you "Lakers" now converted to river catmen?
     
  16. Congrats on your PB :)

    what is this about rod holders you guys are talking about. My rod holder helps me pee! :D

    If the river was an hour closer that would be so. However, , I can fish a lake anytime no matter how much rain and wind we get. I would be lying if I said it couldn't/wouldn't be addicting, but prob. after a few skunks I'd be done and on the lake again. All my goal this year is to beat mellons big flat of the year and I'll be good. Sidekick vs. Sidekick

    King,

    You havent fished the river w/ me yet. In order to see Mellons Cat Wagon you must be a river catman. Billyboy, I dont even think of the time it takes me getting to the river, or the gas I spend, or the wear & tear in my Jeep, or the way I feel after another night of being Skunked w/ Jack, or why my arms & legs & back ache after fishing w/ Jack on the river, well, okay maybe that stuff does cross my mind! But like my sig says: As Long As I Outfish Flathunter, It's All Worth It!
