So what do you do when you're itching to do some catfishing, but the boat's not running? Why take the kayaks of course! Cheezemm2 and I paddled the big OH for the first time on Saturday, and it was a blast. Some strong upriver winds created sizable standing waves that we did our best to avoid. We managed a real mixed bag, 10 species: 7 flatheads, 6 channels, 12 white bass, 6 wipers, 3 skipjack, 2 smallies, 1 largemouth, 1 sauger, 1 bluegill, 1 green sunfish. It was kind of funny, we each caught three wipers in a row on nearly consecutive casts. Then, even though they were on the small side, I get out my camera and say, "I'm going to get a pic of the next one we catch", and that was the kiss of death for the wiper bite. We tucked in behind some barges when we switched to catfishing mode to duck the wind and waves, so of course every cat tried to drag us into the barge. Man, those fish are smart! Biggest cat was probably just shy of 20 lbs, broke off just as Cheezemm2 was trying to lip him.
