  3. Congrats on the 1st of 05 :)
  4. You fished the mouth of Cross Creek in Mingo? I have always wanted to hit that spot but didn't know if ya could get down in there because of Wheeling -Pitt steel. Do you fish it often and how do you do? I used to hit those backwater ponds in Rayland all the time for LM bass, crappie, bluegills, carp and channels. I have hit some 10lb + channel cats out of the creek there between the train bridge and the road. They are a pretty good area sometimes, especially early season when the water warms up faster than the river. Congrats on the first fish of the year!!
