Have caught 3 species that would make the Fish Ohio mark this year. These all came from local up-ground reserviors and caught in the last couple of weeks...

29" Channel Cat:


14" White Crappie:


20" Smallmouth:


Wondering how many others have caught F.O. size fish out of the lakes, reservoirs and rivers of NW OH? Lets hear some tales and see some fish porn!

Nice Gar. Especially the second one. What did you catch them on? I've been meaning to tie up some rope and yarn flies, the kind that just catch in their teeth, and get down to wiers rapids area and give them a go. Lots of gar there and Grand Rapids.
Beautiful channel cat by the way. 10 pounder easy.

..Nope..checked the ODNR website...Gar are not listed as "fish ohio" awards..but wow I,ll take a day of tassling with a few of those over most any other fish..they are nothing but one long mean mass of muscle and put on one heck of an "air show" when hooked..it was like hooking into a prehistoric monster from the past..LOL
Heres a catfish I just recently caught from a northwest upground reservoir..didnt have a ruler with me at the time..but as refference I wear an 11 size shoe..and that was my 7 ft. medium/heavy action rod.
