    Well we decided to give it a go even know there were storms headed are way we started down river and the boat motor stared over heating so I had to shout it down just got it back today from having the water pump replaced some much for that anyways we were at a spot I been wanting to try so we fired up the trolling motor and headed over this is probably the only trees I ever seen 20yrds from shore submerged this part of the ohio there in 20ft of water so we throw some live gills out and I figure all try a gut sack from one of the dead ones My 5 yr old son is just fired up he wanted to get out so bad so I fired that thing out next to the tree roots that thing didnt even hit bottom and they were running clicker anyways ended up with 8 in the boat 22# 16# and a bunch of 5#ers my sons was 16#s and hook 2 good ones that pull loose under the boat so we had a great night .You cant wipe the smile of my boys face

    That is a great night of fishing. Always nice when father and son can get together and wet a line. Even better when you have a night like that.

    great catch, looks like they have been spawning. Thats a good sign that they might be coming out of the spawn.
