    went to saltfork to do some flathead fishing with doughboy and caught this 51 lber on a live chub over by the beach area across from the marina,gave my new surge rod a workout,she was released as soon as the pics were taken,I would like to have caught her before she dropped her eggs,she would have probably been in the mid 60s according to the length and girth at the back

    Nice fish Tony!!! Glad to see the big ones are hitting out there.
    Maybe that will turn skip into a believer?

    Super job Tony, excellent fish. Next one you catch just say you caught it at the Coshocton ramp LOL.
    I'm with Rollo, I wish you coulda caught that beast the other night on the river. We could still be there trying to reel it in LOL.

    well,I got to get back out to salt-fork with loanwizard and netman jack last night and we had some good runs and Jack came thru again with a 20 lber ,so at least we know the bite is starting and they are coming off spawn,thanks to Shawn and Jack for letting me fish with them,it was a pleasure
