    Took the wife and kids on an overnight stay on the Scioto to a spot Flathunter showed me. The bite was slow all night. My daughter and i did manage a couple of dink channels before dark. My wife and son couldn't keep their bait away from the gars with a total catch on them being 4. My son caught one around 48" long. Around 10:30 i got the bite i was looking for ending up with a 21 lb flattie the only one caught last night. A few good hits later through the night but nothing serious. Notice the surprised look on my face with my 1st 20 lb+ fish caught this year. :smile2:
