North Fork Paint Creek 5/17/04

Discussion in 'Southwest Ohio Fishing Reports' started by BMagill, May 26, 2004.

  1. Went with my grandpa and 6 year old son for some smallies and catfish. Action was slow, but right as the sun set the cat fish line starts to go. Let the kid reel it in, fight lasted 10 minutes as the fish kept taking line. Finally beaches a 41" Gar, 7.5 lb - fish was longer than he was. I had caught a smaller one (30") earlier on a rogue. Was surprised at how well they fought, I think they get a little bit of a bum rap. Gonna make sure to take one of those frayed nylon rope lures on my next creek trip.
     
  2. That must be one heck of a son you have. I never knew that Gar fish were in the area. I guess it went for a crawler, right?
     

  3. Actually, it hit cut bait.
