    Fished the Ohio River last night near Steubenville Ohio................from about 530 pm to 130 am..............caught 2 flatties.............a small 4 lbs 13 oz flattie on cut bait and my new personal best flattie 17 lbs 12 oz on cut bait............lost another flattie alot bigger then that a short while later that broke my line after he wrapped me around something on the bottom !!! We had live bluegills........creek chubs and suckers with us and the only thing that we had any bites on was CUT creek chubs (the heads).

    My brother in law KC landed his Personal Best Flattie right after i caught mine at 25 lbs (sorry no pictures)





    MY NEW PERSONAL BEST 17 lbs 12 oz

    Way to go on that new PB Brian. I'm glad to hear this report! I almost went there to Pike Island the same night, but didn't since I was getting a later start. Sounds like a fun trip!

    I said Pike Island because that was where I almost went. It sure is a big river.....that's why I go there sometimes instead of the small waters I normally fish!

    You don't need to start bickering with Rockbass on this forum too. Rockbass's statement never implied that you fished at Pike Island but instead stated that that was where he was planning on fishing if he had went.
