    Couldn't stand knowing the big ones were biting so I drove down yesterday evening. Got there at 8:30pm. Caught a 10 at aroung 8:45, a 20 at 11:00,and then got the one I was looking for at 2:00am. Went a little over 40. Needless to say it was time well spent.

    Wish I could have stayed all day today and went bass fishing. The river looks absolutely prime right now for those big spotted bass and I had to look at several of my favorite areas while making the trip home wishing I could be out there working them over. Something about that river...

  5. Vey nice fish dude!! heck the 10 and the 20 are nice enough let alone a 40.

    Im like Dink, hoping the fall bite just went into high gear with the cold nights, with the water temps dropping quickly. I hope to get out Sunday afternoon for a while

    It seems like the past couple years goldfish have been the ticket. I used to think bluegills and native creek chubs were best, but anymore the goldfish bites outnumber the other baits at least 4 to 1.

    The validity of that may be suspect since I am only getting to fish cats a couple times a year, but in those couple time fishing anything but goldifsh was pretty much a waste of time.
     
  13. Congrats on the catch Brian!!!!! I will down the River outta Steubenville tommorrow. I will try to let ya know how the tournament goes........Again, Great Cat.......

    Nice catch Brian. Does it make you want to give up Bass fishing?

    Thanks guys!

    Neocats - I love just about every type of fishing but don't envision any other species coming between me and my bass!!! Too much of a competitive drive and bass tourneys fit the bill perfectly.
