    We tried our gently used trailer today and it is 200% better than the old one which was a vintage 1700's at least!!! Went up the Ohio across from the LG&E Power plant, which used to be one of my Honey Holes...NOTHING. Went across to the Power Plant, plenty showing up on the fish finder, but no bites. Finally, I hooked into something, really didn't feel like a fish and landed a bleach jug full of water and a crawfish inside of it. Casted out into the Channel, no activity then something hit my line. The fight was on. I fought it for 40 minutes, felt like it was a monster, then I lost it. :sad2:
    My question is: this has happened before, feels like a fish, I think it is running, taking line, feel like I am making progress, than nothing. I always ask myself, is it a Fish or is it a Log. With the current as fast as it is, it is difficult to know what I have. Any suggestions???? :confused2:
