    I need some new fishing buddies come spring.I'm so sick of my friends flaking out on me at the last minute and I end up sitting out there all night by myself.I usually fish anywhere between Dresden and Duncan Falls.:wink:

    Sorry Joey, no one on here fish's it. They say it's because there aren't any good size flats in it.

    James, there is going to be an informal "breakfast" gathering on december 13th in zanesville. If you can make it, you'll meet more Muskingum river cat fanatics than you can shake an ugly-stick at.

    By the way, Dresden is overrated. LOL

    I usually fish it here Zanesville. Hopefully next year we will get some rain. Last two years has been awfully low.

    I was gonna say Dresden is the only place to catch a 70+ pounder, but I didn't want to lie to the guy. LOL

    You "northerners" are due a 70+, eventually. Just a shame it'll be a carp and not a flathead lol.

    I've seen a 64 come out of there below Zanesville.So its not too far to stretch the mind that theres a 70 in there.

    Coshocton,
    Lot more at Zanesville than Dresden or Coshocton due to the river being larger the further south you go. Breakfast is Sunday the 14th.

    Dresden and Coshocton pools will eat props so be careful with your boat.
