2 posts in this topic

Hey just got back from Thompson Ferry had good luck on Channels but could not find the flats, caught a 31 incher right off the bat and then caught numerous smaller ones and then ended the night with another 31 inch channel, i fished with cut mooneye that i caught the other day up north, good thing i kept about 30 of em they work great as cutbait, i fished snags and also 2 deep holes, any tips on how to get the flats do i need live bait maybe- will post pics when i figure out how 2 do it

------------------

I can sleep when im dead lets go fishing-

Bait selection helps, but if I knew a surefire way to catch a flathead right now, I would tell you. Truth is... I don't. One night, I do well for no particular reason, next night fishing the same spot... nothing.

Its been said a lot in these forums, you need to put your time in and have lots of patience, thats how you catch flatheads. If you expect to catch one every time you go out, you might as well fish for something else, cause it won't happen.

Sounds like you found some nice channels though!

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.
