    Being the fool I am, I decided to try to fish tonight. Thermometer said it was 33 out when I left. The only place I could get to the river nearby was at a ferry landing, which had about 20 feet of the slickest muck I've ever seen down towards the waters edge, so I couldn't even get close to the water. So I did the best I could, and toughed it out for about 2 hours. Wish I could have at least got a hit, but there was nobody home. I am gonna try tomorrow, and maybe I'll have better luck. Man I wish spring would get here!:sad2:

    I was over the river yesterday and it looked like it was running pretty good. Hurry up and clear up so we can all crawl out of our holes.

    How high is the river now? I'm thinking about hitting the New Cumberland pool around Steubenville on Monday.

    Well, since I'm sitting in a blizzard, I think I'll go out in the garage and make up some sinkers. Anyone wanting to ride their sleigh over is more than welcome!:big_smile:

    I have been down to the boat ramp at Fredrick's Landing on the Licking river watching my friend George wet a line. He has caught a 3 pound channel, a 8 and 12 pound blue using cut shad. The river was way up but dropping. He is catching a few shad in his net right at the ramp. Good luck and keep on fishin
