Went out to the Scioto July 10th with some crawlers and a castnet, couldnt find any shad. Shortly after setting up in our first spot my bobber went under and after pulling out of a snag my drag was not set so when the fish ran he snapped my 30lb powerpro, very disapointing but my fault. we then moved down river and caught 4 channels between 2-5 lbs after that we moved to the last spot of the night and just as I was reeling in my line my buddys pole got what looked like a tap from a small channel the 10 seconds later his pole slowly bent over and he hooked the fish. After a great fight he landed this 20# 3 oz. Flattie (his second ever) Its scratched up from the spawn and YES he hit on a Nightcrawler. We went back to the same area the next night fully stoked with Goldfish and chubs and after a few spots we found more I couldnt believe it 1st Mikes pole goes down and as soon as he gets his 9.5 lb Flattie in the boat my bait alert sings and I bring in a 10lb Flattie (MY FIRST EVER) then while hes netting that his other pole goes and when he gets done netting mine he reels in a 6lb channel, BY FAR the BEST 20 mins of fishing Ive ever been a part of. After chasing these beasts all around ohio and countless hours of reading website posts and the great websites Hookedoncatfish.com , and Katchaser (Thanks Robbie and Doc) I Finally landed one in my own backyard.
