8-17-19 Bass report

Recommended Posts

Got to 107 ramp at 6:30am ran towards the dam fished points and some off shore structure. Caught a few small bass on magnum trick worm went to Indian creek marina had a really good bass on came off at the boat. Decided to take a ride to the south fork area it was muddy so I ran back to the main lake and fished all the way back into a small creek at the very back in really shallow water there was a bunch of baitfish getting chased around so I threw everything back there that resembled baitfish with no luck. I picked up a brush hog started pitching to some standing timber I felt a big thump then watched my line slowly start moving. When I set the hook I knew it wasn’t a bass I fought the thing for a good 10 minutes it kept wrapping around trees and trying to go under the boat when it finally came up I wasn’t bothered by not having my net in the boat because it wouldn’t fit in my net anyhow. This is my biggest fish I’ve caught on rod n reel. 39.84lbs Flathead. Released in good shape. It made the front deck of my boat into a slip n slide and I think it ruined a fresh spool of florocarbon line I think it’s been stretched to much now it has a ton of memory. Caught a couple more bass. 2 keepers on the day

Nice flathead. Kind of jealous since I have not caught one on a rod and reel. Great looking fish and glad that you released it!

Whopper of a flathead.  FW is right they are delicious especially the belly meat but not everyone likes catfish and I probably would have released one that big too.  Love to feel the pure dogging power when they fight.

I love eating flatheads and blue catfish I just didn’t know what to do with it. I couldn’t get it in my live well in one piece maybe not in 2 pieces. I didn’t have a cooler. I wanted to continue fishing.
