    Wouldn't you know my luck. I went to a little spot north of Steubenville on the Ohio River in search of White Bass and Skip Jack for catfish bait. I ended up catching 8 Smallmouth in the first 15 minutes I was there. Most were small, but one was about 14". All hit on a Chartruese Curly Tail jig. I stopped counting White Bass after 75. All were in the 4-8" range. Stayed out until 9:30 and only caught one Channel Cat that weighed in at 5# 13 oz.

    Can't beat a chartruese jig. It doesn't resemble anything I've ever seen in the water but fish seem to love 'em. Good enough for me:wink: Sometimes (unfortunately) the best fishin' of the day is fishin' for bait!
