    Seems to me when the water temps are in the 60's the fish fight better than they do any other time of the year..Thats just my observation. Congrats on the fish though!!

    Way to go Brett, my brother-in-law caught a few down by Bellaire,Ohio last night on the Ohio. The biggest one was 16lbs he said. Looks as if the flathead action is picking up there in your area.

    Congrats Brett

    Yes from what I have seen on that section of river all season long is fresh cut Shad has been the best bait.

    Opinion n from what I have seen
