    Unless I miss heard, the local weather dude said its going to get up to 65 degrees Saturday! I have some bait in the tank and freezer, thinking about hitting the river possibly. Not, too often you get days like that in late December. The only thing I can foresee throwing a loop in it, is all the ice coming down. Hopefully it will be better by then though. Anyone else planning on heading out? Merry Christmas....rollo

    Looks like the ice is gone on the Muskingum, but it is pushing pretty hard.. Too bad there ain't no drifting for blues there. I think I will still give er a go.. I know of a few wintering areas, and might see if I can get one to nibble!:big_smile: rollo

    With the weather being this nice it really sends up your expectations of catching something. Good luck to you, hope they aren't filled up on Christmas dinner though. If they are as full as I am tonight they won't bite for a week..

    Well, I drove down to the river to see it is a total mess. I didn't think it would look the way it did. All the other ponds and lakes have ice on them. Not sure what the plan will be now. And to boot, its thundering and lightning outside now! This is crazy! rollo

    I got the green light from the wife to go on Saturday. But then I saw the river was at 14 ft. at Zanesville. Way too high, the normal pool is around 10 ft. So I will pass. There will be other days.

    im heading out today to try a few spots. Gonna feel good just to be able to get out there again, even if i do get skunked..... I hope everyone else is fortunate enough to take advantage of the nice weather. Going to be beautiful in my neck of the woods. I am dying to try out some of my new tackle and my new baitcaster i just picked up. Ill post my results. Good luck all!

    I was planning on heading out today, but I got this stomach bug over Christmas that's keeping me pretty close to home - really close to home. Good luck to those of you who make it out!

    That is some nasty stuff Jerry. My sister has it right now and we had it come thru the house last month. Hope you feel better soon.
