    Me and the Sman went fishing on the Muskingum last night. We set up in 14 foot of water but I caught this 19# flat right on the bank using a large gill. The water temp was 53 degrees. After releasing him I threw back in the same spot, 20 minutes later I got another good run and set the hook. The hook turned in the bait but he held on right up to the boat. He had to be 30+. We had a great time and thanks again Sman for puttin me on some fish!

    No problem Kip, glad you caught the smaller one though.
    No need to embarrass Garret, Matt, and Chris with a 30+ this early in the season lol.

    Congrats on the fish Kip, glad you guys did well. The fish seem to be pretty active early in many of the sections of river.. Hopefully, it will be a good year on the Muskingum!.... rollo
