    After a long weekend of floating the Hocking on Saturday night with my wife and only catching 2 cats, then floating the Scioto on Sunday night with my son and catching alot more fish. My daughter informed me yesterday it was her turn. Got on the Hocking around 4 yesterday. Hotter than _____! We floated for 3 hrs before finding a place we decided that we would want to spend the night. A nice sandbar at the end of a long bend with a nice pool of water and quite a few logs. While i was attempting to catch bait (a few white bass and a dozen shad) my daughter put a crawler on and preceded to catch a couple small channels out of the pool. She ended up with 3 channels for the night and an 18" flattie all on crawlers. Using the shad for bait (cut) i caught 6 channels, 3 of those measured 24". The best fish of the trip came at 12:30 when i caught a 30" flattie on a 6" white bass. turned into a really good trip for her and i. Pics are of Maygens flattie and my 30" flattie.
