I live in Columbus and fished in Salmoides last year. Partner has major boat trouble and can't fish this year. I really want to fish as many Alum Creek opens as I can this spring. I love chasing those darn smallies at Alum. I'm also searching for a circuit to join again. Maybe Mega Bass,Salmoides or Extreme. I'm going to go ahead and fish the ABA because I can compete against other non boaters.
