    Well Mark (Salmonid) and myself hit the river again today. This time fishing in Cincinnati. We started off where we left off last Saturday. Catching fish or having take downs in every spot we were at. We caught 9 nice fish today as well as we each lost 2 fish that we hooked up on that absolutley slammed the rods down.
    No blues today but the channels were biting well and the flatheads were absolutley hammering the shad, and one was caught on skipjack. Totals were 3 channels and 6 flatheads, all from about 3 pounds up to the biggest being 22.
    We had a crazy 5 minutes of fishing a barge, got to the spot immediatley I hooked into a nice 6-7 pound flathead, got him in the boat picture taken and released. Then another rod went down, which brought in a nice 7 pound channel, pictured and released. Then after the release another rod went down and this was Marks 22 pound flathead, that hit the bait as soon as it hit the bottom and absolutley buried the rod. Finally got him in the boat and then my rod went down which brought in another 6 pound channel. So now I have my channel laying on the floor of the boat as I am trying to take a picture of Marks 22 pounder, as this is going on Marks other rod gets slammed, the fish hit it so hard that it is now pulling drag as the rod is in the holder!!! I pick it up and try and pull him in, while trying to picture Marks fish...haha that fish ended up getting tangled in some brush or something and was lost.


    All fish were CPR'd and it was another great day on the Ohio. I think I might be ruined with having my 2 best outings within a week of each other...I hope the fishing stays this hot, and that I can get into some blues.

    Nice!! Were you guys near a grainery by chance? Out of curiosity what was the preferred water depth for the fish? Congrats on the fish, I havent hit the river in forever due to the flooding now that it is down maybe I should reconsider!

    We caught the fish from 3 feet of water all the way up to 30 foot of water.

    I am hoping we get a little rain tomorrow which should keep some of the crowds off the river. I am going to try and get back on it tomorrow late afternoon/evening when I get off work.
