    Had a few good runs but didnt hook up. Ended up getting two. one around 5# and the other was in the 20# range. heres some pics of the bigger one. Got the 5# on a live blugill and the 20# on a live bass. Did have one other hook up on a bass but he shook me after a few seconds, felt decent but who knows. Weird thing was neither fish had any spawning marks that I noticed. Maybe they are late bloomers.

    John, nice catch. I hope you had the kids with you. I haven't fished the Scioto this year. But I have been noticing the cats I have been catching on the Ohio that only about half will have spawn marks. I think the spawn is over down this way.

    Oh yeah had my 10 yr old daughter and 13 yr old boy with me this trip. There is no better fishing partner than the little ones. My seven year old got his first flat earlier this year it was a 6#. should have seen the look on his face. Her is a pic of my 13 yr old and his biggest so far. And he thinks this is a monster. cant wait till he hits one over 30.

    i don't care how big, anything caught on a bass is invaluable.

    Nice catches John. Glad to see it might be heating up some. Been a rough summer so far on the river.

    Since this thread is about the Scioto, I thought it a good place to question anyone that might know.

    Are there flatheads in Griggs or the Home Rd area? I have heard stories about them being there, but I have yet to catch one. I have been going to Home Rd. quite a lot in the last 3 years.

    I did catch a 30# snapper there about a week ago. :)

    I've fished Griggs & O'Shaughnessy for over 20 years and have caught hundreds of Channel Cats and not a single flathead. Having said that, i've seen pics of a handful of Flatheads caught there. But mostly below the dams in the tailwaters.

    That is pretty much the theory I was thinking. Guess I probably shouldn't spend too much time with expectations of getting a flatty, anymore. :)

    Channels are the only ones I have been getting as well. Just tied my PB the same day I caught that snapper, with a 10lber. It was UGLY though. It had red bumps all over it. Fought well though.
