    Floated a stretch of Paint Creek on Wednesdy 5/23 with a buddy and managed several nice fish. We caught about 25 smallies with the biggest being about 15'' and a dozen Kentucky spots. They were all fat and agressive. Most were caught on cranks. One on a venom tube and one on a buzz bait in the morning. I also got my fish ohio pin out of the way on this trip. I boated a 22'' Sheephead on a hellgie. All it takes is one of these ugly things to remind you why they are considered a game fish. What a fight. I wish it was a smallie, but hey I only complained for a few seconds. On a side note the creek looked like it was mid august. Very low for this time of year. "That's why it took 10 hrs to float the creek today honey''.;)
