Hey Guys! I had a great time on my outing in Hocking Hills. I caught 2 smallmouths & 3 channels, a 17 1/2, an 18, & a 20". I got back on Friday & was back out fishing in Lancaster on Saturday night, then it happened...A 27" 6'4lb. CHANNEL!!!! That is my biggest fish so far, EVER! I know a lot of you guys catch 5 times that size, but I'm pretty proud of my accomplishment! Using a 30lb. test leader really helped, even though he put kinks all through it. I was back out again yesterday, but wasn't as lucky. My goal is a cat that weighs over 20lbs. I'm trying! I want to check out the Hocking River & see what happens. I've been to a lot of places that are nice, but fishing must be better in a boat. At both Hoover & Lake Logan, I kept getting snagged & losing my tackle. I'm looking for places that have really good "snag free" bank fishing. Any suggestions would be great:wink:!
