fished the Tusc this morning for the TCBA tournament..............only fished from 9 am to 1 pm..............caught 2 smallies about 12-13 inches on a spinnerbait.............caught 4 more smallies on a mustard colored tube bait....3 of them were 12-13 inches long and one was a spawned out 15 incher ........the bite was TOUGH until i located one small spot that was stacked up with fish..............only caught 1 fish in the first two hours + of fishing and then caught the other 5 fish in one area within about 45 minutes !!! it seemed today like LOCATION was the key !!!


Big fish of the day was the 15 incher that weighed 1 lbs 14 oz !!!

This is about the Kokosing River. We floated it (4 boats) a few years back and absolutly killed the smallmouth. We put in at Millwood and floated the whole day. It rained all day. Met the game warden at our takeout spot and he said we must be diehard fisherman out on a day like that. Was my best day of river smallmouth fishing ever.
