Ive been wading around checking out some new spots lately, which led me to get skunked the past 3 times Ive been out. Friday on Big Walnut, Sunday on the Olentangy, yesterday on Alum. :S Not cool. I decided today was the day to cach a fish with the warmer weather and steady rain. Ive always had good luck in the rain. It drove me out of the house and into the Scioto on one of my favortie crappie spots. I was using minnows under a slip bobber in deeper holes. 5 minutes into it produced a moderate smallie. 15 minutes after that came a 13.5" white bass, possibly my PB. A half hour fight on 6# produced this whale of a Carp. 31" long and 21" girth. A definate PB. While it felt good to get some slime under the fingernails, my tastebuds and ultralight still require some crappies to keep my satisfied. Any river anglers have any advise on the mysterious December river crappie? Thanks.
