    My father in law and I went to the scioto river south of Franklin County last night. I caught one head and one 9 lb. Blue cat but my father law said there are no blue cats in ohio. The head was about 37" and I think about low end was 10lbs. My father in law had a great run but the fish took him under a tree. I was told that you could not catch heads from the shoreline so I have learned if you try anything is possible. So next time I will be better prepared with more bait. :big_smile:

    that would be extremely rare...i have fished that river for 30 years and have caught thousands of cats, but have never caught a blue in the scioto...im thinkin you caught a lite colored channel.....but when you catch a blue you will know the difference....good luck

    James, I sent you a PM. I would normally love to take you up on the offer, i'm heading to the Ohio this weekend. No offense, but I much prefer the Ohio. :big_smile:

    Garrett, while James and I were fishing, we decided to look for a better location.... when we couldn't find one, and headed back to the original spot, James had a mis-step and fell into the water.:smile2: I smile because he wasn't injured. Aside from maybe his pride.:big_smile:
