I stumbled upon these forums not too long ago and have been reading a large number of threads with great interest. I was tempted to post in reply to several threads, but I didn't want to detract from the original discussions. So, here I am starting a thread about me! I fished a lot as a youth out west. When I moved to Cincinnati out of college, I just never warmed up to the fishing around here. Tackle began collecting dust. Fast forward 20 years and here I sit with a 7 year old son who loves to fish. The last few years, we've fished 2-3 times a year ... always while on vacation or a weekend camping trip. Now he wants to fish more! What drew me to these forums was an attempt to find some fishing locations for my son. We live on the eastside of Cincinnati (Anderson Township) and I'd like to find some waters relatively close for a day's fishing. I originally was interested in finding some small waters (ponds), but I have been intriqued by threads about the LMR. I didn't realize that the fishing was as good as it seems to be. I have lots of questions regarding tackle and boats (canoe/kayak) that I'm sure I'll ask at a later time, but right now I'm interested in hearing any recommendations for places to take my son fishing. I'm sorry for the long self-absorbed post, but my son's interest in fishing has rekindled my own. I'm reminded of the great times I had outdoors and I'm excited about the possibility of sharing new adventures with him. Thanks for your help.
