Aep 8-4

Discussion in 'Southeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by jethro, Aug 6, 2007.

  1. I Noticed many people posting about upcoming AEP trips. I was there fishing Saturday morning, only fished one pond near the road that has produced for me in the past from about 6:30 am to 11 am. Caught a little over 20 bass from the bank with the biggest being about 2 pounds I would say. Most fish were in the 12-14 inch range and all were caught on finesse lures. The only tips I can really give people are to fish SLOW and make pretty long casts. The fish are easily spooked. The bite slowed very significantly around 9 i would say so it is important to fish around dawn and dusk. Here is a picture of my biggest fish along with one of the more average ones. Good Luck!

    Good job jethro! AEP land is awesome aint it? August is pretty tough to catch 20-bass in one morning. Pond or not...
    I went out this morning/Monday at a spot I fish out by Somerset. I caught three on a crankbait. And two on soft plastics. I haven't had a gig bite for several weeks.

    Gignpig out...

    I was there that whole weekend and did very well also. Two buddys and I caught around 60 to 70 bass and found some new ponds. All in all a great weekend for how hot it was.
