    Has anyone else been skunked by the weather? The Big O is running up and dirty, pretty much every river around here is pretty much unfishable. It's not that we are getting a ton of rain...but what we are getting is coming at just the right intervals to keep things muddy'd. I just want to go fishing on the river.....:sad2:

    Dont get me wrong I am very glad winters over...I suppose I'll stop whining now:cry:

    Yep, been skunked every time I've been out so far. The Ohio looks rough & muddy right now. We've been out on the Big O twice this year and no fish. I figure we'll eventually get some stable weather and the fish will start cooperating. Until then, I'm going crazy!!!:eek:oooh::crazy::smile2:

    These spring rain is driving me nuts also. I'm wanting to hit the river so bad I can taste the fog but have never been able to have much luck when the river is up and raging.

    When the river was around 29 ft below the gates at McAlpine I was able to catch some 3# cats on shad guts in the trees below the parking lot just before the Nature center. I did not get any bites on cut skipjack.

    The water was real fast and the only semi slow spots was in those trees. I used at least 4oz of lead to keep the bait still about 25 feet off the bank.

    In the faster water I was using 6 ozs but it was still moving the line.

    I think I will try using some shrimp later this week. The water will be even higher but Im hoping I can still get into the trees.

    Anyone have any good spots or areas to try below the dam at the fossil beds?
