Tusc. River over the weekend

Discussion in 'Southeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by fishing_marshall, Oct 21, 2007.

  1. 10/19 - Went out a little before dark hoping for some saugeye and maybe a pike. Ended up catching a 4lb bowfin first cast with a spinnerbaits. No eyes were hitting, but just before I was about to leave something hit the rogue and almost ripped the rod out of my hands. It was another bowfin 4.5lbs

    10/20 - Caught 2 small bass and then found the pike. I caught 2 (27 and 24 inches) My brother caught a 24in pike and we all missed a few fish. They were slamming spinnerbaits right as we were getting ready to pull them out of the water. I caught one of mine on a jerkbait and had one fish bite me off on a Xrap. The rest of the fish hit big spinnerbaits.

    10/21 - Got out for about an hour today. Missed a hit on a spinnerbait. Went to cast back to that spot with my strike king suspending minnow and cast over a branch. I let the jerk bait bob up and down on the surface and the pike slammed it. Ended up being a small 22incher.



  2. Sounds like a pretty decent weekend josh, Congrats on the fish!

  3. fishing_Marshall - Nice fish, all caught from shore it looks like.
