    WOW!!! I don't even know what else to say.
     
  5. That's a lot of lead. Every fall when they let the water down at Berlin Reservoir, we end up with a bucketfull of stuff.

    That is just unbelievable. I bet there is at least that much below O'Shaugnessy and Griggs in Columbus.
     
  8. ...dont drink the water...you'll go crazy from lead poisoning. thats just a rediculous amount of lead from the bottom of a river
     
  9. ...and here I thought this was going to be a post about a flathead catfish.

    Great work!
    Not only are you getting lead out of the river, but you are probably helping to reduce the amount of snags for next year's walleye run.

    Hey, can I have my jig back? It's the chartreuse one.
     
  11. this is what I got back in June the river is a lot lower now this was only 9 Lbs[​IMG]
     
  12. That is quite impressive Roger!! I wonder what was biting on the golf balls?:D:p

    So how are you finding all of this? It seems that it would make a great cleanup activity for this time of the year. If you could put a group of guys to the task who knows how much may be recovered. I assume you plan to melt the lead back down for jigs? If not I am sure there are guys here that would.;)
