    Wow, what a way to start the 2008 season! My first catfish of the year was a 8-1/2 pound channel cat I caught at around 9:30pm on May 3rd out of Caesar's Creek Lake. I was fishing from the bank at my favorite spot, and using a dead 5" bluegill for bait.

    I was fishing alone and luckily some guys were fishing back in the cove, and I got them to come over and get a picture! I'm going to have to figure out how to do that by myself, just incase no one is within earshot next time!

    I hope all of you brothers and sisters are getting out there to fish. It's been so beautiful here in Ohio this past week!

    Congrats Angie! Feels good to land your first for the year. I know a spot off 380 when the water is up in a couple of weeks where we used to catch some big flatties that I am sure still produces. PM me and I will let you know and I am going to have to spend an evening there myself soon. Good luck for the rest of the year.
