    Went to AEP this Friday morning 8/17/07. I caught somewhere around 17-bass. The eight legal length ones averaged about 1.25lb.. The other eight or nine were dinks. One on gig-n-pig/one on soft plastics/the rest on deep diver crankbaits. Yippie!!! I've had a heck of a week!!!

    Hey leckig,
    A Gig-N-Pig is basically a skirted gig with a weed-guard and an Uncle Josh pork frog trailer. Mature bass (in my opinion) seem to be inclined to go after slow moving targets such as crawdads/Gig-N-Pigs. When bass hit this lure, they feel/taste the fleshy pork frog and don't (in theory) spit it out as quickly as they would soft plastic trailers. Older mature bass have seen plenty of spinners, crankbaits, and other lures. But the big gals just can't adjust to reacting to a falling gig-n-pig whether they're hungry or not! The energy a bass spends on inhalling a slow moving gig verses a buzz-bait or other faster moving target is very minimal. So if bass are anything like everything else in nature, they would rather spend less energy output and still reap a reward.
    I recommend that you do some reasearch and try it out. Then tell me about it.

    Pretty cool catching'em at AEP huh fishjunkie?
    I went down again yesterday morning/Wednesday August 22nd and only caught 2-keepers (and no more strikes) at the same place I hammered them last Friday. Me and a fishing buddy went out this morning out by Somerset and we both got skunked. Another guy fishing alone didn't get a hit. And two other men in yet another watercraft got skunked.
    The area we hit this morning didn't look like it got an ounce of rain. And it most likely didn't.

    I'm pretty sure that there are about 300 ponds down there, marked and unmarked. I'll include a link to some info at the bottom along with some maps of the area. To mapquest the area, do Cumberland, Ohio and go south on SR 83 for about 6-8 miles.

    AEP RECreation Land Information and front Page.

    RECreation Land Maps

    If you're going to head down there anytime, make sure you either print a permit or stop in at Gracies to get one there. They also have maps. Gracies is on Main St in Cumberland (SR 146 I believe) on the east side of 83.

  13. Roger that!
