Got Newbreed out on Oshay

Discussion in 'Central Ohio Fishing Reports' started by fishslim, Aug 6, 2007.

  1. Well scratch one from the list:D Had a good time this evening with Mitch what a cooker out there!! Went to Oshay and hit couple spots before hitting spot from other day!! We got a few small one on first spots then at honey hole anchored boat and we got into them steady for about a good hour caught a ton of crappies. Mitch was impressive i think he only changed lures couple times but kept coming back to the reliable 1/8th ounce jig with 3" chartruese twister.;) :) Got into a giant tonight about 10 casts into fishing the honeyhole i set the hook and the pole doubled and the line smoke off the reel like a salmon on it's first run:D That sounded pretty good! lol Well after 50-60 yards of line peeled off the reel i finally started bringing the hog in. Now mind you remember this is on Bass Pro mono 6 pound test and medium light Lightning rod i bullied the fish to the boat. Yea right!! After it wore me out it finally came up to boat and Mitch got the net barely around it. The Biggest Flathead i have ever landed!! Laid it out on bottom boat and put my 36" measure stick beside it with tail flipping it was 36-38" long. We estimated weight at 30-35 pounds!! Was i pumped of course get the camera take some pictures only to remember left camera on counter after putting batteries in it!! Bummer!!! But Mitch came thru with a picture phone we took 4 pictures and put it back in the river to wear the next guy out!! It was awesome. Now pressure is on Mitch to see if he can get pictures loaded and put on line. I hope so!! Thanks for going Mitch will try it again sometime!!:)

    I know the GPS coordinates! :D . Slim your making it too easy to identify!!!

    Id say after this heat its going to be time to do the old jig flingin. You got that trollin motor workin good, I'll be needin someone to hold it steady so I can hit the !% and show you were there at!!!

  12. Nice fish, that's what I've been looking for all summer there.
  13. Just got home WoW That is a pig!! :) First time i got to see them other then on mitch's phone. Thanks for having the picture phone with you i was bumming!! As far as cordinates from picture YOU All SO FAR ARE WAY OFF NOT EVEN CLOSE!!:) 4 P.M.'S so far all thinking they knew the spot Come on guys there is only a few spots on Oshay with wood allover the shore line!!:p Was a great time and as mitch said the crappies were as hot as the tempature!! Acklac great fish as well!! What a blast on light tackle! I agree with you and Misfit. They are busy gourging themselves after spawn and what a better way to do it then roll up on those baitballs and fill there mouths full. Had my boy out last year about this time at Alum down by dam and water was crystal clear we watched 2 giant cats keep coming up and flip there tails thru the baitfish and spin around and start picking up the stunned ones it was wild. Hey Sowbelly i am with you am more then willing to hold the boat steady to see some of those big blacks coming out of hiding!! Let me know when!!

    Wow, somone said you got a nice flathead, I didn't realize it was the same size (or maybe a bit bigger) than mine! Two biggun's taken from the Scioto (on jigs w/light tackle) in two days..I think their hungry!

    I thought I had my hands full with a 6'6MH w/8lb test..I can only imagine fighting one with 6lb test and a ML rod! ( As I said, man am I glad I switched over to my MH that night, my ML wouldn't have done squat)

    And the best is your description of the initial run! I was on the phone with my buddy earlier (before I read your post) and I told him "man that thing hit, then bolted straight out into the depths, I haven't had anything run like that since fishing for King's in Michigan! :D..Flatheads have some muscle!
  17. WOW, That is in the hole. Lookin forward to catchin that big fella. He sure knows where to hang out to get a good meal anyhow. Next time, hide that big log behind you, somebody will find THE SPOT ! Take care, oh yea, nicccceeee feeesh. Steve would love that one, could eat for a week !!!:D
  18. Hey Mick i hear you and Dale are going to hunt down my hole Friday!!;) Good luck and only one rule if you catch my pet Flatty put her back so i can play with her again!!:) Crappies should be there still and waiting weather pattern is not supposed to change unless a big boomer dumpd a few inches up river!! Maybe i will see you out there!!
  19. Hey Mick did you guys get to Oshay to chase the Crappies friday? Is my flattie safe? Think bite slowed river up was some and front was stronger then thought.
