    Worst part is gonna be getting rid of the ice! I usually keep the boat covered, but after fishing last weekend I just covered the consol with a tarp. And looks like it ain't gonna thaw. I will figure something out. rollo

    I drove down 52 today along the river and it's higher than I have seen it in a long time...I'm crazy, but not quite that crazy!

    Yeah I drove down 52 on friday as well, all of my spots were pretty flooded. I drove all the way to nine mile (steam boat dr) to see what it looked like and the road was actually closed - covered in water. I am hoping by Friday the river will be low enough to at least net some shad.

    If we can stand it for a few more days we will be okay. Course it means another 14 day stretch with no fishing.

    I actually did some bank fishing on Sunday. Went down to the White Water river right where it spills in to the Great Miami. Didn't manage to get a single bit but it was still a good time. I got the dog out and started a small fire and hung out by the water for the day. A few fish would have been nicer but it was still nice to get out. That is one nice thing about Winter fishing, no one is out there, so you can do things like start a fire and let your dog run around.

    I agree. Personally I am a loner and love to get out there by the water. To me there is nothing better than a clear night by the river with a good fire going.

    Fishdealer04 and myself have tentative plans to get out in Cinci tomorrow if I can get off work early enough, air temps around 36, I hope its 10 degrees warmer then they are calling for like today, they just keep changing the weather all around every day, very frustratiing, today warm spell originally was supposed to be tomorrow. Water is still falling hard from 33 to 32.5 ft tomorrow afternoon which will make launching real fun.Its still up in the air but hopefully we can get out, I got cabin fever so bad its just not funny anymore, havent been out for cats since early Dec.

    I am definitely trying to get out there this thursday or this weekend. I had a hard time trying to net shad the other day. They had moved upstream a little from where they were a few weeks ago. Anyway, good luck with fishin'.

    I wish . Plowed the snow from in front of the boat,that way if things get as cold as they say it won't have three foot high piles of frozen snow in our way. Today made fourteen days with out a pole in the water, got the shakes pretty bad. We did make it up to the spillway to get some bait Thursday so we did get our feet wet at least. Course yesterday the crows flew into the bait tub and killed the shad so guess it would have been a good weekend to get the shotgun out and do a little crow hunting.
