    just an fyi for anyone fishing the ohio river, last night a friend and i tried our luck on the ohio in the steubenville ohio area. i had a dozen creek chubs and a sucker for bait.
    thinking we were goin to get rained out we rushed to get the poles in the water even with the wind blowing as bad as it was. amazingly we were 12 for twelve! ever cast yeilded a flathead. nothing really to brag about size wise,im guessing the largest was only 8 lbs, but i couldnt believe the pace we were catching these fish. it seemed it would sit there for only a minute or two and bam!
