1. Details: Smallmouth Bass

    18" smallie caught in the current seam just past a 90 degree bend. Hammered the spinner. Only fish of the day but I'll take it!

  2. Details: Smallmouth Bass

    Prime fishing weather but the rain has been a pain. Doesn't mean they won't bite in heavily stained high water. Look tight against the banks with structure ...more just outside of current. They will be hiding there. Solid 16" creek smallie along the rocks.

  3. Details: Smallmouth Bass

    Heavily stained water but bass were hungry last week. Fished slack water just outside of current along a rip rap bank. Burned the craw through the rocks and they ...more came out and snatched it up.

  4. Details: Smallmouth Bass

    18.5" hog caught in my favorite winter hole on the first cast. Tossed the bait into slack water and drifted the bait slowly until it hit bottom, then slowly ...more rolled the bait back to me. Fish hit right as the bait was leaving the slack water. Gotta love catching winter smallmouth!

      @smalljaw I went for a wade. I have been wanting to get the yak out again but most flows are a bit high for me now. There is a warm water discharge on the scioto ...more I've dying to hit from the yak

      Know you got the 'yak not long ago. You float or wade more in winter?

      That from a float or wade?

    Hit my favorite winter hole last weekend and picked this guy up in the first 10 minutes. Slow rolling a 3" swim bait near the bottom.

  6. Details: Flathead Catfish

    Personal best flathead and largest fish I have ever caught. Fishing for saugeye, bumping the bait along the bottom when I felt the bait stop in place. Thought I ...more snagged a tree until it started to peel drag. Amazing fight on a light spinning setup and 10lb test braided line.

      Awesome flat

      No I did not have a scale or tape that went that long. Wanted to get him back in the water quickly too. Rough measurement based on the photo puts it anywhere from ...more 36-40" probably 25-30 lbs @Smalljaw

      Yessir! Not an easy spot to access, typically the best spots are not easy to access. @Smalljaw

  10. Details: Saugeye

    Trolling crankbaits behind the kayak.


Central Ohio fisherman. I like to fish for smallmouth and largemouth bass but will also go for catfish and saugeye. I mostly wade creeks and ...more small rivers.
