    We went down to the new spot I've been scoping out to fish today for a couple hours. No takers on frozen skippies or crawlers. Lost a lot of tackle to the Mighty Ohio though...:smile2: I was fishing bottom only, forgot to take my Kat-Bobbers with me.
    The water current was pretty slow and the water was way down. As far out as I could see good, It looked like the bottom was only 6-8" deep. I was fishing right beside of a feeder creek. I decided since the water level was so low I was casting out a pretty good distance out to deeper water to try to locate the cats.
    I also used my ultra light and walked up the creek trying for something to use as bait. Nothing at all around but Ducks & Geese. I reckon its too cold. Not far from where I was fishing at the creek and the pool behind it was all iced up.
    I'll get some pics up later after I get them D/L and some other stuff done. BTW, My new avatar was taken there today with my Little Baby Molly...:wink::big_smile:
    She had a blast, chased Ducks, Geese and even got in the water a little...:smile2:
    Its good to get these Skunkings out early, gives me a better chance in May to take on DH...:tounge_out::wink::smile2:

    Good looking spot John, I bet it will produce some good fish when you hit it on the right day. Looks like it was still a fun day fishing. Thanks for the report and pics :cool2:.

    Thats it Rollo. Don't wanna give any edge to the competition.:confused2::wink::smile2:
    Low back is feeling better but upper back and neck is killing me from flinging them weights and bait...:roll_eyes:...This is getting old, any little thing I do will lay me up for a few days. May look into seeing another Spinal Specialist before long, too much fishing ahead to be feeling like this. Plus I gotta get better before May...:wink::big_smile:...Or get some good pain meds for that event...:cool2::smile2:
    Anyway, It was great to get out and break the Cabin Fever...I had fun and it felt great out!!!:cool2:

    Sounds like a plan to me. Actually it seems like a great place for a little get together there. Ohio guys can fish the river there legally with their OH License.:confused2: Plenty of tables, shelters and a nice playground for the kids also.
    What do you think about April 26 Gathering at Vesuvius moving to there? Its not much farther and easy to find. We'll talk more about it soon.:confused2:

    I can't wait to hit that pond for some eater Channels and Trout...:wink::big_smile:

    Hope my back straightens up or I won't even be able to Trout fish...:sad2:
    If it keeps up I'll have an MRI done soon(next week). Its not normal for it to be this bad. Hopefully we can hook up soon!:wink:

    Where you located at? Sounds like you might be close to me and Danny. I'm just outside of Ashland in Flatwoods here, 2+ miles from the Mighty Ohio...:big_smile:
