    It has finally happened. The GMR in Hamilton is turning on. My son and I went out around 9pm and finally started catching nice cats by the old dam on Bst. I hit a 10lb shovel head and bout an hour later my son caught bout an 8lb channel. guy down from us landed a 6lb channel. This warm weather has put us off to a good start.

    I went to the spot below miamisburg dam last night. I managed to catch one dink channel cat. As I was sitting watching my poles, I noticed a large tail just below the surface in the shallow rip rap. So I pulled in one of my poles and quickly pulled the lead off and put a float about 2 feet up. I cast a little up stream and let it settle near where I saw the tail. The cut bait set there for about a minute and the float went under. I set the hook on a huge carp.... No lie.... a carp on cut shad.

    I was on the GMR on Friday night I had 5 or 6 really strong runs and nothing would hook up. I have never had that hard of a time hooking up on runs that strong. I wonder if they were gar because there was no way to get a hook set. I was fishing cut shad the whole time.
