Tanner's 8/7

Discussion in 'Ohio River Fishing Reports' started by hunterm, Aug 9, 2004.

  1. Went out Friday evening, on the water by 7:30 fished till around 12:30 then got cold and came in. Who'd have believed the weatherman would be right about the temp :confused:

    Had a few runs and caught a couple small channels and drum. Had a Real nice one on, but he hung me up and broke off (you've all heard this story before so I'll spare you details :eek: )

    All fish caught were on cut bait. The big one that got away was on live bait.

    :eek: Sorry......I've been drinking alot of coffee & it seemed funny !! :confused: Not funny you lost it, but funny to ask how big it was. :eek:
     

  3. Big, very, very big. He headed for deep water and even with a CatMaxx heavy baitcasting rod and a 6500 reel with 25 lbs trilene I couldn't turn him around. He got wrapped up in something on the bottom and broke off. My biggest ever was right at 25 lbs and this one felt much bigger...
