    I have been a diehard catman since i could fish.I would like to know if anyone fishs the tuscy around Port Washington and further north. With cold weather on the way I need to find some deeper holes. I am just not ready to give up yet. The big problem is, when i see a good spot it always seems to be posted! I am a newbie to the sight, but i have been cattin for 30 years,and i always seem to have to take a extra trash bag full of trash with me when i leave my fishing spots. Maybe thats why so many places are posted? Well enough with complaining! If there is anyone with any suggestions it would be much appreciated. Remember this, Catfishin Rules!! How many Bass fishers do you see on the water in November,December and so on....

    The bar i think your talking about has burned down! If it was the one on the corner across from the big guns. I hope its the wrong one though. I do agree with ya man,nothing quite beats good corn fed scenery!

    Hey Crazy Cathunter! I live in Gnaden, and fish all over the Tusc from Newcomerstown up to Bolivar. I was just out earlier to prefish for a tourney this weekend and caught a nice channel, but called it quits so I didn't sore mouth all the fish:wink:

    With the water up some like it is, they are hitting good. I was using shad. I had 4 hits and landed the one fish. Not bad for a half hour considering the conditions:big_smile:

    I think you were talking the Ugly Mug:wink: It's closed and boarded up. Owners got in legal trouble......and surprisingly it wasn't because of the girls.....and the other bar has burned down. the only excuse you need now is that you are fishin:wink:

    Cuz I live pretty close, and knew a lot of people that used to hang out and hang them out there:smile2:

    It was more than tax evasion too.

    Go to your County Auditors website and do a property search by address and you will know who the owner is.
