    Man. The GMR was a freakin Pay Pond tonight. To make a long story short: I managed 1 lousy 7# flathead. There were so many lanterns & flashlights I could have not used my glowsticks!

    Not Like It Matters, But Here Was The Hot Tackle Of The Night: :lol:

    Abu SEVEN Reel
    Quantum Big Cat Rod
    Gama 8/0 Oct Circle Hook
    5 oz Bank Sinker
    30# Mossy Oak Line
    Live 7-8 inch Golden Shiner/Dark Goldfish/Isreali Carp as Bait

    You just cant beat that combanation. I mean just look what it did for me! :roll_eyes:

    I aint working all week, just today and tomorrow day shift...I caught fish yesterday, just not catfish, I took a bait rod and got into a bunch of saugeyes on the scioto, must have caught 15 small ones in a couple hrs..It was fun catching something for a change...Taking the boat out wednesday night, but with the spawn, I look for a skunking.
