Went out to the ribs festival and enjoyed some of the finest ribs in the country! I saw some decent access to the river around the banks so I decided to try my luck on the Scioto for the first time. I had a pretty solid trip, landing a 1.25 chunky lm bass on a rattletrap within the first hour then and eventually landing a solid 3 lb 2 oz lm bass on a tube around the 2.5 hour mark. Unfortunately, I missed a lot of opportunities on the tube, missing 3 fish that inhaled the bait. I had just switched my line from braid/leader to a pure fluorocarbon set-up. Since the water in the lakes around here is so clear, I figured pure fluoro is the way to go. The extra stretch takes a bit of getting used to, but I'm sure by my next trips my hook set ratio will be back to normal.
