    Here's what my brother posted on another site, due to following the rules I will not post the link to it. So let's show him a good turnout!:big_smile::wink:

    Please post for sure if you'll be there so I can relay the message.

    Ohio Gathering
    Dillion Lake State Park
    Nashport, Ohio
    June 6th-7th
    10am - ?


    The gathering will be held at Dillion lake state park, the reason for this choice is to give a few choices for catching fish. The Muskinghum river is close by for some flathead fishing. Dillion lake does have some flatheads, but is a great lake for nice channel cats.
    Bring the family for a fun filled day/night of fishing. On the bank or in a boat. There is a beach for the kids.
    I plan on helping everyone with bait. Several of us have cast nets to get shad. But your more than welcome to bring the bait of your choice. Never know what the cats will eat that weekend.
    I have enclosed a map of the park and also a site to go to so you can get a camp site.
    If you look at the park map you will see at the bottom coming from I-70 coming north on RT.142. You will see a 1 with a circle around it, just north of the dam area. There is a shelter there. That is where we will be meeting. I have been trying to get in touch to reserve the shelter, but if I can't we will still meet in that parking lot. Try to get there early and enjoy the company. Hope to see everyone there!!!!
    I want to do a fun drawing that I have used at other events I have held. Everyone bring something that is of a fishing or boating nature that you would like to donate. I will have tickets to be drawn.
    If you have any questions, just post here or pm me.

    Was at the Dillon spillway this AM to catch shad. The spillway road was closed. They are paving the parking lots at the "pond", and spillway. Also the road leading in. The spillway lot was prepped ( compacted gravel )and most of the road to it. They were starting on the pond lot while I was there. Don't know if it will be open by this weekend. As there were no asphalt trucks in sight. You should call ahead to see if its open, or make other plans to get shad.

    Good luck to all, I gotta work this weekend so I wont be able to attend.

    Thanks for the report Skip. Was thinking about heading out there after my Doctor's appt. Guess I'll have to switch my plans a little. Unless you're gonna walk down and get me some, I'll hold your beer...

    Since all the workers were down at the pond , I sorta pretended I didn't see that the road was closed and slalomed around the big equipment at went up to the spillway and got a few dozen shad, lol. I passed the BOSS-Man on the way down and waved at him like I belonged there lol, but they might lock up the gate now.
