    Just curious if anyone was gonna hit the Ohio this weekend? Its gonna come back up, and head down again by Sunday, by how much who knows. I dont even know of any ramps that wouldnt be submerged, anyone else?? And before anyone ask, if its roaring like crazy bringing trees down with it no I won't be going, hoping for the best though..:embarassed:.......I am not the smartest person, but I am not that stupid either..:cool2:

    FWIW, Im hitting the GMR tomorrow afternoon for a bit to see if the high water channels are where I was catching them last week. River will only be about 2 feet high and dropping.

    No sense in pampering that new boat. It's only up about 4 feet with the current around 200 kcfs ! That sounds like a good thing to me ! A few scuff marks on the sides just adds character ! Wear your life jacket ! ...Randy

    It took 3 tries to find a ramp, but we did eventually get into the water. The current was ripping pretty good, no bites, but it took half the day due to other commitments before we even got to the water. The new boat ran great so I am thrilled about that. All and all have to say I am happy with the way today went. We will get on the fish next weekend, the river will be in better shape by then.:roll_eyes:

    Glad to see you got to go to the river while i had to work!:angry::angry:lol Jk bro too bad you didn't get to catch a fish on that new rig. Glad to hear it ran good for you. What ramp did you end up putting in at.
