    Went out from the bank last nite, first to river access for flats--zippo.
    Party boaters were out in force. Then I went to grand rapids below the dam. Fished a few of my holes and ended up with 5 channels, 5 to 8lbs. Had a good run on a bluegill on the bottom so I dropped my float rod and ran over to the bluegill rod. The clicker had stopped, so I checked the bait it was gone. I looked up at the float and saw it go down and realized I left the real engaged. Took off like a madman and just as I got to it the rod shot like 8 feet into the hole. Dove right after it and got it by the end of the butt (waist deep water). Ended up with the 8lber.

    Catfish use rods of all types to make their own structure at times. Then they sit around a hole and laugh about how easy it was to pull off the hit and run. That's why rod holders were invented.

    Opinion: Yep a locked reel in a very sturdy rod holder will help keeping ones rods and get a few extra fish too when you are off behind a tree.

    Adam, that's pretty funny. I'm glad you got your rod back, though. I haven't been to the Maumee since July 5th. I'm hoping I can get down there in early Sept.
