    Garrett and I went out last night to do a little fishing on the Scioto. I caught this fish at around 2am on a big shad head! Had quite a few bites throughout the night but this was the only taker! Also thanks for the laughs and stories last night garrett, we'll get on the water again soon!

    Also : Anyone wanna guess at the weight of Kip's channel from the pic? My digital scale got wet in the rain and wouldn't work. Just curious about what you guys would guess it at.

    This fish looks like about a 5 pound channel. Nice to catch something at all this time of the year. Things should heat up pretty soon.:cool2:
