    Anyone want to have a little fun and up for Braggin Rights?

    Just place your wager on a date when the first River and the first lake Flathead will be caught.
    Must be from within the state of Ohio, Ohio River and Lake Erie are EXCLUDED from this.
    Fish must have been caught in the presence of another BOC member to count along with photo.

    Unless someone wants to donate something for the winners,( hint Hint) this is strictly for bragging rights!

    For streams , Im guessing April 2nd

    For lakes, Im guessing April 15th!

    Happy Hunting !!

    Shawn perhaps I may meet you there, I probably wouldnt get there till about 7ish or so but I can get a couple of hours in and get a heads up on the lake since Ive never fished it before. Lets plan on meeting that night and we can get it confirmed later.

    looks like my prediction is gonna fail, i thought the water was gonna be warmer by now, geez! this last cold snap has reduced the river temp to 38 degrees. it got up to 52 during that last gulley-washer. im willing to give it a shot though.

    Lets hope so. Then maybe I'll be able to make it out to fish.
