Launched my boat about 1:00 today on the Ohio river. I didn't even try for any bait. They are scarace right now. The water was about 22.5 feet and 44 degrees and on a slow drop. The bite was a lttle slow today probally due to the slow drop and the water is still pretty muddy. I used frozen skips and shad. Had several bites but no takers so I kept downsizing my bait. And finally I caught a 18.1 lb blue out of 24.5 foot water. I did get to work on my farmer's tan (until it clouded up) and BS with a friend of mine I was fishing with. So I consider that a good day on the water! I hope it gets better for the ACATS tournament this weekend!
