    Hey brothers! last night catfishcatcher, evilfud, and I fished the Salamonie res. alltogether we only got 4 fish but lots of bites we were using chubs (cut) and evilfud used a few softcraws all in all it was a pretty fun trip. Evilfud got broke off using braid of all things, and it looked to be a pretty good fish we did'nt see any color but we heard a heck of alot of splashing

    Do you have your own boat shortbus? If so we might try 2 go again in a week or two. Do you have room in your boat for another guy if we go. My boat handles up to 3 but might have a fourth going. One of the guys could fish with you if it is ok.

    We might go next Saturday night. Im not sure if it will be Salamonie or Huntington. More then likely Salamonie since it is a much deeper body of water. I will let you know.

    What time will you all be fishing? I might be interested in meeting up with you guys. Although, I'm leaving for Wisconsin very early the next morning so being out real late is not an option! I could bring my boat too.

    Just depends on the weather. If it is not real hot then maybe around 3 to 4. More then likely around 6:00. I will let you know for sure on Friday evening after I get home from work. Will you be bringing anyone with you?
    There is a good chance that we will fish late into the next morning.

    Then I probably won't make it this time, Allen. Like I said, we would probably be loading up the car & heading to WI about the time I got home from the reservoir! I'll try to get with you guys another time!

    Fished salamonie last friday night for a few hours. Caught 3 nice channels in the 9lb range all on cut bluegill. They was slammin the bait and not letting go. All three came from a creek channel about 12 ft deep. I let my nephew catch all the fish, he had a blast.
