Just registered, wanted to intro myself.

I'm from Northeastern Ohio, been fishing since as far back as I can remember.

Mostly musky and pike, some cats, steelhead, walleye and crappie. I fish Leesville, West Branch, Piedmont, Pymatuning, and a half dozen other bodies of water for stuff other than musky.

Married for 30 some years (yea, I'm an old fart), two sons, a dog, a cat, and most importantly a 16 foot Lund rigged for musky. :D


Looking forward to learning all your secret tips and hot spots, but especially making new friends.

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome.

ffffish, I've got a black Lund which will have a custom paint job shortly. Give me a holler if you see me on the water.

I was hoping to hit West Branch this weekend but it looks like it may be too muddy with all this rain.

I have a couple of baits that you might try there...one is made by daredevil...its an inline spinner called a "No Tangle Osprey"....5/8 ounce with a chartruese blade that has orange dots. It works well in the colder water temps. The other bait that I've done well with is a magnum wiggle wart in firetiger.

Hi Vince,
I'm new on board also, But I see alot of names around here that I remember from GFO, I used to be "HypercastHC3" on the GFO site, But something went wrong with this old computer and I can't seem to post there anymore. I talked to BassHunter there over the phone a couple of times and we just can't get me on board. So I'm hoping to hook up with a lot of old friends from there, Here.
I also live in NE Ohio and spend as much time fishing as I can. Maybe we will hook up and do some fishing together if it ever stops snowing up here. :D I'm looking forward to a lot of good fishing this year and hope to see everyone out on the water. This looks to be a well put together site and should provide a lot of good info.

Heck, I might as well introduce myself also. I fish for muskie on Alum and Clearfork mostly, but get out to Leesville, Salt Fork and St Clair a few times a year. I'm the Treasurer for Central Ohio Muskies Inc. and I belong to OHMC. I fish in a Crestliner 1850 Tournament Series. Nice site!

Welcome Vince and Capt. Muskey. I'm not much of a musky guy, but I've caught them a couple times while fishing for other species. I'm pretty much good on everything else though. This time of year, West Branch is one of my favorite haunts. I really enjoy craappie fishing out there. I'll be there this Sunday, actually, looking for the slabs.
I fish all over as well, so maybe I'll see you on the water. 16' Meyers with a 9.9 Honda 4 stroke on the back. You'll see me before you hear me, that's for sure.

Anyway, see you on the water.

Carl
