    all of those fish were right under the bridge. the only one i kept was the saug. the smallie and the crappie are swimming around under that bridge again.
     
  5. Very nice and congrats on the nice catches. That hole is pretty nice, caught a few fish while I was at OU. I also lost a few big fish there, wonder if it was that smallie, minus a few inces:)
    Did you measure the smallie? That is definately a brute.

    thanks. i didn't get to measure it, but maybe later this fall i'll get the chance to pull him out again. he was really long, but could've been fatter...
    i caught this flathead (first one i have ever caught, because i really just fish for smallies) the next day on the same spinner bait.

    I bet you thought you had one hell of a smallie when you hooked that shovelhead.

    no doubt, man. i thought i had the fish of a lifetime. turned out to be a "small" one...haha
     
  13. this river holds a lot more fish than what i had originally expected. last spring quarter i caught a gar throwing a shallow running yozuri minnow. i think i'm heading up to whites mill today...is there anywhere to park near the stimson bridge if i drive over? i generally don't take that exit from 33 to get into athens.
     
  14. nice fish rand! I had no idea the hocking had fish of that caliber....Spent most of my time @ OU fishing out at Strouds- looks like I screwed up
