    tunacat (Dave) and I hit the Ohio River Friday night (8/14/09) and boated 2 flatheads one about 10 lbs the other was 43 lbs and 1 channel 3 lbs. Had 4 other fish on 2 broke off and 2 went directly into a huge tree we were fishing and we couldn't get them out. Dave should post the pictures tomorrow. We lost $25 bucks in sinkers, hooks and swivels in the under water structure we were fishing but we had action all night.

    Sounds like a good time.
    I love fishing spots where I lose cash from the dropped rigs, they always produce if you sit them down right. I have one spot I fish that I refuse to reel in until a fish takes the bait, because if you reel it in it's bound to be a bad snag. :smile2:
