Multi Species Day on the River

Discussion in 'Ohio River Fishing Reports' started by TeamClose, Dec 30, 2007.

  1. Traded in the muzzleloader for a fishing pole and hit the river today. Bait wasn't a problem, with just a few throws had plenty of 6-10 inch shad. Started out after cats, catching 4 in the first spot. 20# blue, 8,10,6 # channels. Then ran downriver for some saugers. Had to go through 25 or so to get 10 good keepers. Then ran back up river to finish out the day looking for some more cat action. Caught one more blue that went right at 40#.
    All the cats were CPR 'ed , but can't say the same about the saugers! Sorry about the pics, hard to take pictures when your by yourself!

    Great job guys! THose are some nice fishes!
  7. Doc, I wish I would have caught that fish on the 1st, you never know it might have held up for a couple of weeks. That will be interesting to see how long it takes to get a fish that will stay at the record. Cats were biting good but I went down to catch saugers for my wife's grandfather, just couldn't resist catfishing, you know how that is!!!!!
  8. Greg nice blues and sauger.Bet it was fun landing those by yourself.

    Sounds like a perfect trip to me.What area of the river were you fishing , what type of water did the sauger come from and is the river beginning to clear any?
  10. WTG!!
    Huge cat, and that stringer of sauger makes me hungry, lunch time! ;)
  11. What a choice from the looks i think you made the right choice.
