    Dink & I hit the GMR today. We got there around 5:15Am & were fishing by 5:45am or so. We fought bad weather from 7:30am until the time we stopped, around 11am. We did best before the rain. I managed 5 Channels, the biggest being around 6#'s. Dink managed a couple channels too. Now for the time that you all have been waiting for: YES, DINK KEPT HIS STREAK UP, BY CATCHING NOT ONE BUT TWO TURTLES. He caught one Softshell Turtle & one Painted turtle. :big_smile: You go Dink. Get all those stinkin things that you can!!! :lol:

    Man i feel sorry for dink. After i quit fishing the scioto last year and went to the hocking i never caught another turtle. This year i've hit the hocking 3 times and have caught 3 turtles. Going to the scioto this week with flathunter and i know those things are gonna be hungry.

    Yea but it probably leaked, I have found that Mellon always has other motives!

    It's time to get this thread back on topic. I think it has been a few days since any reported turtle catches. That ends now.

    Whoa, I messed up and hit submit message. OK, to continue--


    This monster softshell was taken at approximately 8:30. He measured nearly 15 inches across. He was in around 5 to 6 feet of water with a slow current. This bad boys bait of choice is a nice fresh bluegill head. He was released after catch so someday maybe all of us can have a chance to catch one of these bad boys. :lol:

    Way to go Dink, the slump continues for me......I did get a monster Snapper the last time out so I think Snappers are worth 3 points, Painted are worth 2 points and softshells are worth negative 1 point....... :lol:
