    Got out on the mighty Ohio with Daryl today in his boat. He had us on some wipers in short order. Then I put him on one of my honey holes for cats. Nice to see I haven't lost my touch, true to form, I followed my own rules...to a point anyway. You know, let the captain catch the most, and the biggest, this was his personal best bluecat, so that was good, later I managed to get one slightly larger, they were almost twins. ;)

    :D Had a great time, thanks again Daryl. Jim

    We caught alot of fish, mostly blues I think one or maybe 2 channelcats, no flats. There were a few hybrids and I know I caught at least one drum, I think that was it, one drum :eek:
    Most of my fish I tossed back quick as they weren't picture worthy, Daryl got alot of picture fish.

    Daryl banged a couple of these right away, here's the first one. I'll have to fix up the backgound a little on the 2nd shot & then replace it later. Was in a hurry this AM. :)

    One sour note was my catfish decided it wanted to release itself while posing, so when it did the spin/twist/twirl, it jumped onto my reel in the holder & broke the stem/foot off my all purpose skipjack rod. The reel is a 1 year old Fin Nor mega lite 1000 and simply a great small reel with a huge cork drag system-never sticks, always smooth, etc.
    I get on the net, and go to Fin Nor, call the number, had to call back this AM, I asked about getting the new part (body) he said it would be easier to just send it back, I asked about a charge, he said there probably wouldn't be one, but if there was, it would be about $10-$15.00. :D :D

    Oh yeah....big john...couldn't agree with you more, look for more joint fishing trips soon. ;)

  9. Great looking fish guys. I'm always amazed at the size of the cats you catch out of the Ohio River, i'm used to 3 and 4 pounders from Darby Creek.
     
  10. I'm heading out this evening, how is current, drift/debris? River stage @ cincy is 30' now, so I'm thinking it should be a real good night especially based on how you guys did.
