    Mellon and i decided to check out a new spot on the GMR tonight. We were there for about an hour. It looks like the depth is about 10 to 14ft and is full of snags. Mellon had a couple of bites on shad it didn't really take it. But when he reeled in his line the stomach of the shad was chewed all to hell. But I had the only real bite tonight. I was fishing with a creek chub that was about 4 inches. I tossed out next to a tree that was in the water infront of us. It sat there for about 5 minutes. When Mellon and i watched a rock fly over our heads into the water. Some kid threw it in from behind us. About 20 seconds later my rod sounded off ripping out drag. I set the hook and felt him. The line jammed around the spool and got stuck. THis fish felt like i was trying to pull a log off the bottom he wouldn't come up. When i finally untangled the reel he threw the hook. I can only wonder how big he was. It will probaly keep me up all night. But overall this spot has potential to house big flatheads and channels. I will definately be making a run out there this weekend.

    I think we really only fished for about 25 minutes. Yes 25 minutes, basically I just wanted to go & chekc this spot out. I dont think we were fishing until 8PM & we were on the road by 8:45PM. I had to leave before dark becasue I had my six year old & the spot we were fishing was going to be a bear to get up. In fact I'd say that I'd be divorceed if my wife knew just where I took him at! Actually it was a very ba dparenting idea to even take him there, but he did great, as usual.

    I dont think the rock was thrown at us, but was thrown by someone above us, in fact I dont think anyone could even see us where we were at. I doubt many out there would be willing to chuck a rock at me or my kid if we were face to face, but just in case...... I thorw back, but with lead & I don't mean a sinker. !@ ;)

    That's okay, my aim is much better than most people's rock throwing ability ;)

    I have done that before too while fishing the Hocking River. Some Kids thinks its funny, But those rocks would do some damage if they hit you, So I throw them back with force or go after them on foot. :D
