We were out at O'Shay from about 6:30am to 11am yesterday as well and man was it slow. We didn't get any keepers in the boat, just a few small ones cought on spinnerbaits. Although we had one huge fish get off under the boat, however I can almost guarantee it wasn't a bass. I think I am going to try out griggs tonight if the weather permits.
We were actually crazy enough to go out for a little bit today (Sunday) and the water was a lot higher than I had expected......I'm not sure how long it will take to get down. It was also pretty muddy as well, but thats a given. We didn't have any luck, one got off and that was it. I seem to have bad luck during muddy flooded cold fronts, any advice for fishing these types of conditions while we're at it?
Saw a few hardy souls fishing Alum when I crossed on 36/37 on my way too and from Findlay Sunday a.m. It had to be terrible out there early on my way up, maybe improving to just miserable on the return trip. Must have been a tourney of some kind there perhaps?
BTW, When are you going to Canada again? I sure hope that you get a bigger fish than last year. That one was a real beauty but I know you would love to have one larger. I just want you to be happy brother man.
Hope the weather is good for you also. I drove by Griggs and O'Shay and they looked like a Hershey's chocolate bar. I am not going to fish either until it clears up a bit. Broke my arse cleaning the boat off after,
