    JR, have you found flatties in the spillway this early in the year before? I only fished there for them a few times mostly during june/july but never had so much as a turtle run.

    I'm 8 miles south of zanesville. Seems like in the heat of summer my avreage size fish starts to nosedive. Do well in the spring/fall, not so well in july august. I am still working on the best summer pattern.
