    Do any of you central ohio fishermen hit buckeye early in the year? If so, what seems to be the best method to get into some big channels?

    Well I just got back from taking my 2 kids with me out on the boat. We got there around 6:30pm and fished till about 1:30am. Didn't wanna ruin em for life out in the cold fishing, so I came back earlier than my normal daybreak time. However I had a blast with em! We got several hits and our bait stolen all night, mostly ripping out the gut pocket on the shad I was using. We did end up catching one nice 5 lb channel. I think we would've caught more if we stayed but the youngens were starting to get cold.

    Plan on hitting it again tomorrow during the day, let you know how it goes!

    The kids and I had another great day, caught 5 channels and several other bites that were biting short and stealing the bait. Hope the weather clears up for another good day of fishing soon! I hope you all get a chance to get out. FYI, they're catching loads of crappie by the north shore right now.

    Wow, that wind was crazy!!! Caught 2 in the first 10 minutes of fishing. 2.5 and 3lbs. Then the wind picked up heavily and the fishing slowed down.

    Either Picnic point (my preference) or Liebs. I like Picnic point tho in that little pond area. Ill probably be there about 8ish maybe earlier. Depends on weather tho I dont want to take the little one out if its too cold. Lets see how things get going this week but Im game for it.

    I almost went liebs the other day. And you aren't kidding about those stripers. I couldn't get much cats too hit, but the stipers were definitely active.
