Was out again today and soaked a couple of shrimp for an hour and half.
Got skunked again. I should have checked the weather before I went out cause it snowed practically the whole time. Didn't get any bites but by next week I have a feeling it's gonna pick up.

Was out for a few hours today fished a tributary to the mon (muddy creek).
Was trying for some white bass to use for bait. Didn't catch any white bass but I did manage to get a largemouth about 15 inches. A couple other guys were there when I got there and they caught 3 smallmouth.
Looks like its starting to turn on a little.
I'll definitely be out on Sat. with some cutbait and try for channel cats.

The time has definety come.Glad to hear they are hitting chubs got a mess of them waiting to go for a swim.Dont say that hot bait to loud people might be listening.Went out today myself but didnt have no luck. Had 2 bass come up and chase a chub but they ran into each other and i missed LOL. Was good to finally get some river fishing in. Congrats on the first flathead hope it is a start to a good year of fishing.
