Things have been pretty crazy lately, and this report is late, but figured I'd update. Water was coming up fast and the river was ripping. We started out kayaking out of Steubenville Marina and tried to get some whitebass for cut bait. No luck and the current in this area was a whole different ballgame so we headed downriver. (5 gates open upstream) We had chicken liver for backup bait in case we couldn't find any whitebass or shad (creeks were chocolate milk) We finally managed to get 6 whitebass and started cutting them up. I think the final flattie count was 6 or 7 between four yaks, and the channel count was probably around 18. Interestingly enough my best flattie runs both came on a whitebass head. The first one was roughly 12-13lbs and the second run which I did not get was probably bigger. I couldn't get the dang rod out of the rod holder because of the pressure the fish was putting on. A little disappointed in not knowing how big it was since I never felt the fish but learned something. This is the second time early in the season that after I have caught a fish on a cut-head that immediately throwing back into the same spot will produce another hit. Is this because fish begin to pair up for the spawn? I'm curious if anyone has experienced this!?!?
