    Well, I took two good friends out on the Muskingum last night in pursuit of some good fish ahead of an approaching cold front. The channel cat fishing was on fire! Flatheads seemed to be finicky for whatever reason. We had 3 solid runs on livebait, that ended up in just smashing the bait and not committing. Probably small flats by my guess. Channel cats were taking cut shad, with a couple being caught on small chubs and greenies. Got rained on for 40 minutes, but still had a blast! We fished a hand full of locations, and seemed as if the nice sized channels were held up in structure, and in eddy areas feeding well in both. I dunno how many were caught, but my buddy wanted to start stringing some up for a good picture at end of the night , so we did. They had a great time catching. I only caught one myself..lol.. Here is a couple pic.s of the channel cats. Most were between 6-10 pounds.. rollo

    Not good by my standards. I hate not catching atleast one flathead, but I guess it could have been worse. rollo

    Looks like you had action all night, had to be a blast to catch em hand over fist. And seems like the larger fish came out to play. Congrats.
