Archers Alley "Catch Of The Week" For Episode 24 - 6/26 & 6/27/21

 

This week's Archers Alley "Catch of the Week" comes to us from BJ Matheny & his son, Hunter, of Clinton!

 

Sometimes it's not about the size of the catch, but the story behind that catch...this stringer of bluegill served a purpose...

 

 

From BJ: "About 2 years ago my elderly father was put under hospice care. One of his final requests was 'fried fish.' My son, Hunter, and I fished for 2 days at local lakes with no luck. We knew that our time was running short and that's when a friend of the family invited us to 'fill a stringer' out of their farm pond. In less than 3 hours, Hunter and I had filled that stringer full of bluegill. Our hearts were happy, our bellies were full and my father had his last wish granted!"

 

BJ will join us this weekend to tell the story!

This week's Archers Alley "Catch of the Week" comes to us from Rob Gist, of Mt. Auburn!  

 

The flathead bite on Lake Sangchris is on!!  Rob set out last weekend to find a flathead...he found a "little" 25 pounder!  Then on his last cast, he hooked into a near PB 47 pounder!  Quite a trip!

 

 

From Rob: "I set off late friday night, but had a rough time catching blue gills for bait. I did end up with a few small ones, and got my lines out and around 1130 ish. I pulled in a 25lb flathead! I only had 1 live blue gill left so I tossed it on the hook and 30 minutes later bam my pole folded and got me a 47lb flattie!!!"
 

Rob will join us this weekend to tell the story!
