Back, and still trying to thaw out my toes! Day one - 42 degrees, bright sunny skies. Caught 3, missed 3. First fish of the trip was a beautiful 5.5lb smallie (also the biggest of the trip!). http://www.ohiogamefishing.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=3942&sort=1&cat=500&page=1 Day two - 30 degrees, blizzard conditions. Boated 5, missed 4. Biggest went 4lb on the nose. Day three - 15 degrees not a cloud in the sky...BRRRR. fished 3 hours, boated 1 4lb, missed 3. AWESOME trip. Didn't expect a lot in numbers, but hoped (and were rewarded) with some nice fish. Not a fish under 16", avg was 3.5 lbs, with 2 4's and the big 5.5 thrown in. Fished the dam area creeks, all fish on the float-n-fly with a 10 foot 6lb leader, 1/16oz duck or grey hair jig (caked with fish dope). I can't stress this enough, but if you've never caught a football on a 10 foot light action rod with 6lb test, you're missing out on some serious fun. These fish take a while to boat, so your net man has plenty of time to get things squared away (sorry D, couldn't resist!) We missed as many as we boated, either from spit hooks on the jump or just complete oblivion on our part. We had pulldowns while grabbing a drink, looking down at the fishfinder, you name it. It seemed like everytime we took our eye off that float it was gone, and you had all of 5 seconds of fight and you'd lose em. Lisa @ Horsecreek Marina was great to us, and the trip was a cheap 6 hour drive from columbus (3 nights lodging at the marina, covered dock with electric was $125 split by two!). Worth every minute, and perfect cure for cabin fever. Can't wait until March!
