    Did anyone else witness the hordes of seagulls hovering over the scioto this morning? The entire way from W.5th to downtown along 33 there were thousands of them. Maybe it's a good sign for the fishing!
     
  2. I went down below griggs on tuesday and didn't even get a bite but did see a lot of 2-3" shad floating by and starting to die off. I bet that 's what the seagulls might have been eating. Below the damn there was a few calm holes and I seen thousands of dead shad. If you want to get some fresh shad for catfish, I suggest you get down there b-4 it's too late. As I was leaving a few guys walked down with buckets and nets and no poles.

    Good Luck

    Also the shad should continue to die as long as the water is cold and turbid...Should get a few more chances to get some cat bait! :)

    Griggs has been so/so, the flood really came through and messed the holes up, BIG TIME. What used to be a productive sand bar is now a 3ft pile of detritus (leaves,sticks other organic debris). It will be good agian, but it might take a few months, and a few more floods.
