    Very nice fish, I believe you are the first person that has posted anything for the Hocking River. Thanks for sharing and good luck in the future.

    Congrats on the catches!! I am working in Tennessee and haven't been able to fish the Hocking that much this year. The flattie in my avatar came from there and weighed 29lbs. My best from the Hocking.
