Hit above location this evening after work. Literally worked the smallies over. Ended up with 12 and dozens of rock bass. Dunkle (home from the Army) ended up with a load of rockbass and a few smallies. I caught my personal best, just shy of fish ohio. 19.25". I have never seen such an impressive small stream smallie. Most fish were caught in normal areas, but we really got into them right below a certain wide riffle with tons of big boulders in the water. Some came on a rebel craw but most hit on the notorious 1/16 jighead with a 3" white venom grum bounced over the rocks. Unfortunately no pictures due to the fact that I cannot destroy another expensive cell phone, but at least we know the fish are still hungry! Go get 'em fellas!

Nice job! My smallie statistics this year are downright laughable.

That's awesome. I bet that 19.25 hit like a freight train!

Thanks guys. Yes he hit very hard, and I knew it had to be a big smallie considering the water was moving relatively quick and it was around 3 ft. in depth. Going to try and get out today again after work. Probably a different stretch of the same stream.

That 19.25 is an awesome fish. I caught two that size on the BWCA in Minnesota, but I have yet to catch anything close to that from an Ohio stream.

Kyle, there is a difference between having a story and having proof...buy a waterproof camera. ;):D

Sounds like an awesome night of fish-slaying!

That's good stuff right there, bro.
Congrats on the PB. 19+"....that's a pig in any waters, a monster in Ohio streams, and a beast in the stream you were in.
Very nice!!:D

Thanks guys! I have a witness, and I rarely tell fish stories...:D

Yeah Andy I was pretty surprised when I first saw it. I got one of similar size last year on the same stream during a yak trip...but much further south. The stretch and the stretch North of where I was is AWESOME. I can see why a certain prolific yakker on OGF frequents it so often.
