    Ohio River below markland dam. Justin, don, and I went out sunday night monday morning caught between 20 and 25 fish from 6#-48.9#. Bite was Good but had to stay on the move. Lost one hog in the dam area because of a bad drag. had the fish to the boat 6-8 times just out of reach at the net. Steve and mike tried to get into place to either take the anchor rope or net the fish. The current was so strong though that it was not safe. After one hour I lost my patients and the fish. Justin will be fixing that real or leaving it at home. All of the rest of the fish where caught west of the dam, from about 100 yards below the bouyi field to the power plant. Mike and steve decided to flat head fish and caught 8 or so. Biggest was 21. All in all was a pretty good night. Here are some picks.

    The big one that got away came out of the very strongest current on the indiana side.

    Steve, Justin did everything he could. Wasnt real safe you know, you where only about 30 yards from us you know how unsafe it was. He made a far better effort to get that fish for me than I did for that fish for you ya know. What I did on that fish of yours was just stupid. I know better. That fish sunday couldnt have had better luck. Bad drag horiffick current and fatboy don. That fish I should have used the rod tip and walked to the front of the boat. Just didnt feel safe doing it. Just like you didnt feel safe coming over and netting it for me, or taking my anchor rope. Biggest problem was the fact that justin brought a JUNK REAL. Unfortunately this one is 1 I cant blame on JUSTIN. Sure would like to though. LOL:0a20:
