    It hasn't rained in forever !! Alittle rain sends that river into a frenzy? Are you guys fishing a ditch or what? An inch of rain will show small or no results here ...And in two days its gone! Esp. this year!!! LMAO! We need atleast 5 inches of rain to get the Muskingum back half way normal for now, the smallie guys are gettin pissed! The Cats are gonna be feedin!!!! rollo

    Well see...
