    I'll be in front of (or behind depending on your perspective) Paul Brown Stadium with my lines in the water, maybe a TV on the boat and the radio on. If you see me out there, wave. It's great to sit on the water and listen to the crowd roar when the Bengals do something good. Granted, that's not very often... ;) Hopefully I may even luck into a fish or two as well.

    What's up King? Long time...

    Well, the night was a good one all the way around. The Bengals managed to hold on and win the opener which was a very good thing and I managed to catch 6 cats! My flatty of the night may have gone 1 lb with my bait in his mouth but they got better. 5 channels all around 5 lbs decided to put on the feedbag right at 8:45 and the feast continued until 9:20 and then they were done. Sure was nice having success on both fronts!

    Take care bud- it's good to hear from you again.

    I have always wanted to do that. How busy was it on the river last night? How busy is it on a Sunday during a regular 1pm game?

    Actually I bought another boat, a 2001 Targa (17 foot) from a fellow OGF'er. It's great for the Ohio.
     
  8. What's up Craig!!!

    Been living in Fla. for work the past few months and surely do miss the river and river fisherman. Was watching the game from a sports bar and thought I saw a boat anchored down out there :) Looks like you and the Bengals were rockin

    Everyone else was on the Ky side so they could see the Jumbotron. I wanted to be on the Ohio side over the humps I found that were stacked with fish.

    I didn't take a TV but I will for the next Monday night game. I have a 13" color portable that runs on AC/DC and will work just fine in the boat. It has a small antenna that will get the local stations very well believe it or not.

    My wife and son were watching the game and they said they saw me several times in the overhead shots. There was a plane circling the entire game and I figured they were shooting from up there. My wife recognized the boat immediately- not many center consoles running around the river. LOL

    This is like the old days- catking, macfish, hunterm and others on this thread. From out of the woodwork...

    See ya' all in October!

    Ran down to the mouth of the Mill Creek just to look and anchored in front of the stadium within 100 feet of shore in 23' of water. Wound up moving about 100 yards upstream 1/2 an hour later and found a hump with fish marks.

    The river traffic was very light and the crowd was fun.

    I'll be out Friday night most likely and I'l lbe there for the next Monday Night Football game in October, even though the Bengals suck. LOL

    Go east past the stadium and the US Bank arena, follow the road for about 5 miles and you'll come to Schmidt Ramp and Fields. $10 to launch but the ramp is good, there are docks and it's lit. That's a plus at 4:00 a.m. when you're trying to recover a boat.

    It's a short run west to downtown. The Mill Creek dumps into the Ohio downstream from Paul Brown Stadium. It's been known to have shad hanging out there.
