View Full Version : 'The Flat' Late Post for 6/19 & 20

Fished the afternoon of the 19th by myself for the pesty 12 inchers and nothing but! *Fish were in 40 to 50 feet of water in the DC area inside the No-Wake zone. UV Sling Blades with Chatter Sticks and NO scent is what worked for me. Wind was very strong and gusty at times making it very tough for one guy to fish the box. No chance to take any action shots but did manage a screen shot just seconds prior to FISH ON!


There were some other Sniffers prowling The Flat, but I don't see any other reports. :o *

Saturday I fished with The Dentist and we were on the water at 0530. Started outside the No-Wake zone at 50 and 60 feet, same set ups, UV SB and a gold Chatter Stick on one and black Chatter Stick on the other, both sides smeared with PC nightcrawler gel. We enjoyed better fish out there and ended our morning at 0830 with The Dentist scoring 4 nice 15's and me with 3, having the largest at 16.5.

Sunday I had a fantastic Fathers Day as I hope all you other Dads had.

Could it have been Slapabow being escorted by Chigger22?
I think we landed 3 bows and lost acouple due to overly excited
boys ;D. Bf18 was there too. He said he has some action pics but
needs help posting. Marked tons of fish.
Small Kings?????????????????????????

And the other sniffer would be me. :-[

The little woman and I got on the water at about 4:30, headed straight to Kevins fishin' hole, DC. *;D
Ended up with 3 holdovers all around the standard 12". All were bleeders, darnit! Guess I need to get a pressure cooker. Trolling Fire tiger needlefish. (need to get some Chatter Sticks!!)
It was a fun day on the water. Had a great Fathers Day, all my kids and Granddaughter (Sweetpea) called.

Nice boat Chigger22!!
Check your email Kevin, sent you pictures. I think. :)
Good to see you out Edd.
