    I hit the Great Miami River at Dravo Park this evening for a couple of hours. It was a great night to be out. I caught my personal best flathead tonight also, and it was the first fish of 2 that I caught. It measured 31.5 inches. I tried to weigh it but my digital scale wasn't working. I'm guessing it weighed between 15 and 17 pounds.

    My second fish was not quite as big, but still respectable. It measured 29 inches, and I'm guessing it weighed about 12 pounds. It wasn't the healthiest looking fish - it looked like it had broken its back earlier in life. Looking at it, I wondered if killing it might have been more merciful.

    Nevertheless, both fish were released to fight another day, and I enjoyed myself tremendously.

    Very nice fish brother, keep up the good work. I have a few friends that have been pulling out some nice Shovels out of the GMR.

    went fishing at Dravo tonight. Caught a 15lb hard shell turtle and a 43 in gar on shrimp... Did not have my bale open and my line snap on my other pole while reeling in the gar.....Watch out for a red neon while fishing down there... He came thru the parking a couple times looking for something.... You cannot miss the car it has a high pick muffler.......Not too sure if it is something to worry abt or not... Had my one rim stolen in the spring there.........
