A couple of weeks ago I went bass fishing in the Everglades and loved it. I thought the itch to fish would have worn off by now, but it hasn't. I live w/in 1/2 mile of the Scioto and work right across the street from it so I figure why not start fishing around here. Other than some blue gill fishing when I was a kid and a couple flat fishing trips in Florida, I have no experience fishing. I'd like to start fishing for small and/or large mouths from the shore or wading. I've read some good pointers and tips on here already but any other help or advice (i.e. equipment, bait, good locations, etc.) would be much appreciated. Thanks.
