    Went out today down at Sandusky. Fished a small creek off the River then moved to the point where the river meets the creek around 2pm. They hit like crazy off of chicken liver for about an hour then just gave up. :sad2:

    Lost 3 due to a bad hook set but the ones we got in were pretty nice. The picture doesnt really do justice, the very middle one weighed in at 9 pounds... The rest between 5-6 pounds other than the little one :tounge_out:


    I tried circle hooks for the first time today... I just couldnt take it. My pole bending and rattling I just wanted to grab it and rip it up... After hooking one and missing 3 on the circle hook, I went back to tru-turns and octopus hooks lol! Now I just need to find a few pounds of mushrooms and im set for a nice little fish fry.

    Nice work. Don't be too quick to give up on the circles. Gota make sure they are real sharp. :wink:
