Bonus catch on the GMR today

Discussion in 'Southwest Ohio Fishing Reports' started by Salmonid, Jan 8, 2008.

  1. Got out for a little catting this afternoon, it was spitting rain, windy and warm, a perfect time to get out on the river, Hit one of Dinkbusters holes called the "Jungle" and was throwing cut shad ( frozen) in small pieces (quarter to half dollar size) on a 3 way and a 6/0 Gama circle.
    First hit was the best suprise of the day, week, month, maybe even winter! a 4 lb flattie, whoo hooo:D :B
    then took 3 more channels and then the last fish ( making 5 for the 2 hrs) was another nice suprise, a real nice 7 lb 3 oz channel. All in all a great time to be out except for the 20 minute walk out in the pouring rain.. should have left after the big guy was landed.;)

    I hope you enjoy the pics!
    Flattie, just over 4 lbs

    and another shot, very pretty

    smaller channels


    Medium channel (3 lbs)


    and the 7 lb 3 oz channel, compare the size to the pic above ( same rock they are resting on)
