My dad and I pulled this guy out yesterday morning 54 lb
Now thats a fish
OK................ what river and how far from a big river was it ?
Nice very nice
Cant tell you what river it is but its probably 25 miles from the missouri river by water.
thats a dandy
how and what on
thats a good one
trotline, using bluegill
Must be running up to spawn, good catch :claphands:
yea she had alot of eggs but I dont think they were ready yet
Not wanting to get your fishen spot , just trying to learn a little bit . How wide and deep was the river , on average ? The middle fork of the chariton is still wild from salisbury on down . I have often thought it could hold fish like that .
yep to me some of the best flatheadin is in the small creeks on the run up to spawn
Its probably 10+ feet deep in the better holes, and probably 75-100 ft wide in parts.
VERY nice flatty!! I wish I was going to be on the river
look for steep mud banks, mud bottom at least 6 ft deep. No Gravel. We use throwlines PVC poles, and limblines
A Throwline is basically a mini troline. They work great on small rivers. It is anchored to a flexible root or limb at the surface and weighted on the other end with a milk jug full of concrete.
The ones we make are about 25-30 feet long 6 hooks staged every 30 inches or so, on about 14" leaders. Starting about 5 feet from the bank, and leaving at least 5 feet for the weight at the end.
The fish is dead and gone so what's to hide about this super secret spot. :roll2:
Great fish. I wouldn't share secrets about a small body of water either.
Hope we catch one comparable this coming week at the Roundup!
Lamine,Blackwater,Petite Saline Creek,Chariton.I'm still
The Big Grin knows there is many more there.
Nice fish, wouldn't mind finding a few like that this summer
Seen alot of bigguns like that come off the Moroau(sp?) down in Moniteau and Cole countys.
And it's a fairly small river/creek.
