Glad I found this forum! I live in the most southern part of Ohio and have fished since I was a child. The problem is my husband, who refuses to go fishing. He hates it. The only "fishing" he does is through the t.v. channels! I don't mean to sound terrible by saying that, but I just would rather be outdoors, especially during the warmer months. It seems like the only women in this area who go fishing are with their husbands or boyfriends so maybe its like that everywhere in which I feel really stupid posting this, but I'd rather go fishing any day than go shopping. Anyway, if you (male or female) are planning a trip to southern OH and don't mind an extra person going along, please e-mail or p/m me. I live 2 minutes away from the Ohio River. I don't have a boat but love to fish from the shore or by boat when I get the opportunity.
