    I just got back in from fishing all night on the banks of the Mighty Ohio.It was very cold and rainy but the bite was pretty good.I caught 4 flatties-7,8,10 and 22.7lbs all on live Israeli carp.I also got a new PB for 2006,the 22.7lber.I did get 1 pic of it but its not very good,I'll post it later on when I unpack my stuff.He was a pretty good fight,especially when he got close to the bank,he made 5 or 6 good runs every time we tried to net him.I thought he was closer to 30lbs but the scales proved me wrong.My buddy caught 3, 2 channels and 1 flat,biggest 9lbs.Too bad I wasn't in the tourney :confused2: If I had have been I woulda got skunked! :crazy:

    Glad you did good. Congrats. We'll try er again. Just got up from going out last night. Dove season must have opened. Shots booming to the east. Must have shot a box of shells in the past 15 minutes.

    Congrats on the successful outing. I have a feeling these cooler temps and all the rain is really going to make fishing much more productive then it has been of late.
