    Fishing the Ohio after I get off work tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. at the mouth of Harrods Creek from a piece of private property. We will fish at least till 12:00 a.m. and will let everybody know our results later this weekend. Our bait of choice will be Skipjack.

    Went to the Greenup L&D yesterday to try for skips and cats. No luck on either. Guy down there told me the water temp. was 38*...Maybe another month or so till they start hitting.

    Had lots of small bites and only caught two small ones but they were keepers. Only fished till about 8:00 p.m. and then gave up.

    Well........ when you have as many children as I do other things become priority in your life and there was lots of current and white caps on the river which make it very hard to fish so priorities won.

    You did'nt "come off" in any certain way and I was just telling the facts. Thanks for the apology though it was not needed.:wink:
