    I know its still pretty early but has anyone been catching any smallies in ohio yet ??? if so how early do you think smallies will hit artificials like tubes , grubs, and jig & trailers ??? what areas in a river should i try first ?? what baits do i try first ?? i usually start catching them in mid march to early april what do you all think ??? :confused:

    If you can find a DEEP hole with rock and wood in slack
    to slow water try a hairjig and a 101 porkfrog or U2 trailor.
    dark but natural colors. browns,olive,greens.
    bear hair is better in cold water (34-38 degrees) than fox
    and deer doesn't move much so keep a couple handy just
    in case they want something really slow.
    if you need a soucre for hair jigs pm me and I'l share mine.
