    Howdy Folks - Just wondering if anyone has had any luck on the Muskingum yet this year . . . Would like to get back out soon and that is usually where we set-up shop.

    Normally, our posse hits the new boat ramp in Coshocton and we have had some mild luck in the past . . . Any place else that we should check out? We all live in Hanover, just outside of Newark.

    Thanks and Good Luck with the Hawgs!

    BushDwg, welcome to the site, im also a new member and I have to say this site is great. But anyways, Ive heard a lot of good about the Philo pool down in Philo. We plan on a trip there this summer. Its supposed to produce a lot of nice big flatties.

    Alot of good fishing up here around Coshocton...Fishing with a boat or on the bank? If your going off the bank I would suggest a little further down stream from the ramp....It can get ugly when people are trying to load and unload thier boats..

    Welcome to the site! With the spring floods, all the area from last year has changed. Try to find wood near and depth change. They are still in early spring pattern IMHO.
