I was planning on hitting the Muskingum tonight, but opted to try for some saugers during the day. I took off the 10lb test I had on my walleye rod and spooled it up with some 4lb test, after all the saugers down there are generally never any bigger than 14 inches . We'll that was a big mistake on my part. I think I got broke off today 6 or 7 times, it was actually getting really old. Generally I don't mind a good break off every once in a while, makes for a good story - but it was to much for me. All in all I managed to land - land being the keyword here - 1 nice gar close to 3 foot long, 1 white bass and one HUGE hybrid. I took an educated guess using my arm as a tape measure and assumed he was about 23" long. It honestly took me about 15 minutes to reel in and took me about 80 yards down stream. Before I hooked into him I had set my drag really low and decided I would put my reel in free spool, which I have never actually done. We'll the free spool is probably the reason I was able to catch this fish. He was kinda skinny but was A LOT of fun none the less. My other friend caught a white bass, and hybrid, and a big old carp. My other friend, well he got skunked The river is up quite a bit with about 6" of visibility. I was using two 1/16 oz jig heads with white and chartruse tails. I was also wading wader less which felt pretty good in todays warm weather.
