Default Yellow river Flathead fun

We decided to hit the river last night for a few hours not to hunt trophy's but just to do a little fishing and catch a few Flatheads to eat for today. So we headed over to Jim's fish camp and picked up 7 dozen large shiners and its a good thing we did the gars wore them out as well as the channel cats. Once the sun set It didn't take long to start catching some Flatheads and get enough to eat for this holiday.

We didn't catch any over 7lbs but that was expected with the bait we was using, but that was fine we had a blast and caught alot of fish even a few blues. The water temp was 84 when we got there and fell to 82.7 about midnight, The water level also dropped about 2 feet in the short time we was there almost making it impossible to get threw the little hwy 87 landing canal with my center console.
