Ok, so I have 3 Fish Ohio Fish this year.

1. 30" Carp from 4 mile
2. 10.5 in Bluegill from a private pond
3. 28" Channel Cat from Acton Lake.

What is my best bet for a 4th to get the master angler pin? I thought I had it already but a 9" Rock Bass is not a Fish Ohio like I thought it was. I'm thinking Rock Bass is still my best bet. What would you be targeting?

I've always found Drum to be one of the easier Fish Ohio. In my opinion Saugeye and Hybrid Stripe Bass are not terribly difficult for a river angler in this area. {easier than a 20 inch smally, at least for me} A lot depends on How and Where you fish, I stay mainly on rivers and steams. Good Luck !

rock bass would be pretty difficult i rarely catch ones that are over 10" but i have thugh the past two years that i was back home before i left for the navy i have a spot where i can catch 10" rockbass 9" bluegill and 14" crappie regularly within a few days then i always finish strong with either a LM or a huge carp from farm ponds...i can get master pin in like two weeks of fishing =]

With fall on the horizon I'd say one of the saugfishes.
I have never been able to successfully target them. I mean I have caught them, but only incidentally. Any tips? I am pretty sure 4 Mile only has eyes, not true saugers. Anyone confirm that?

I’ve caught saugeyes out of 4 Mile, some of them have been pretty nice too, I’ve never heard of a sauger being caught out of there though.
