Default Yellow River Flathead/pompano

Got out to the YR last night around 7ish. Took advantage of the moonlight. Beautiful night out. Caught my first flattie and had a bonus surprise as well. a POMPANO. Caught on shrimp, while I was fishing for channels. Had another hook up on a cat which took me straight to the limbs.

Cathunter, I have many questions to ask, and thanks for the help so far.

Interesting night had a LOT of hits which Im thinking could be turtles????/maybe? I was watching one of my rod tips play around, reeled down, like you would for a bass, felt the tensions boom hook set however that was the one that got wrapped around limbs. Another time I was just reeling in, felt some weight which felt like a log and it turned out to be this flattie in the picture.

For some of you skeptics I do have a salt/fresh license.

A question. I have a disabled fishing license. Do I need any other kind of license?

I'm not sure if the disability license covers both...My guess would be that it's sorta like the sportsmans license which covers both but don't take that as law....

License and permit privileges included

A Resident Persons With Disabilities Fishing & Hunting License authorizes the holder to take *game and fresh and saltwater fish and provides the deer, management area, archery season, muzzleloading season, crossbow season, turkey, waterfowl, snook and spiny lobster (crawfish) permit privileges.
Persons who have not met the hunter safety education requirements are issued an "angler only" disability license that does not include the hunting license and permit privileges.

congrats man on your first flathead....now you can start tearing them up since you broke the ice. I actually thought about going last night but wasn't sure with the "super moon" beaming.

Thanks! Im amazed at how long their mouths are with gills, moon light was perfect didn't even need to use a headlight. Have you done much catfishing on the 87 end of yeller river?

It's not often you see a pompano and a flathead in the same boat.
