Discussion in 'Ohio River Fishing Reports' started by truck, Sep 12, 2004.

  1. Hit the water about 9am,lots of debris & heavy current!Went to first spot caught 3 channels in about 20 mins,buddy tom broke off right by the boat or it would have been 4.

  2. Went to next spot-nothing ,lots of gar. :( Fishing the back waters you get that alot.Went to next spot BIG ZERO again :mad: Next spot made my dreams come ture!!!!
  3. Got 2 fish,Tom's 10lb6oz my 6lb or less.While we were trying to get them in another pole goes down!Got it to the boat just as we get the other 2 in and the leader breaks :mad:
  4. Next thing that happened I will never forget,rod goes down.I am holding it a couple mins,Tom says bring it to the back of the boat.I am holding this rod straight up in the air watching the line go out to the river channel,and can't slow it down.With the river at 40+ft,heavy current the fight was on!!!!After about 25-30 mins I have a big blue in the boat.Before we could get it out of the net Tom says(I have a real good one on) :eek: After another big fish current fight we have 2 big blues on the floor :D

    That's great. And you didn't have to get up in the middle of the night or grope around in the dark or spend a long time on the water either. :)

    PS: Good job on the backgrounds.......just curious, is it the same spot we fished where your previous best came off of ??
    Another good thing....blues are further up in the river than previously and early in the year too. ;)
