    Went to Edgewater state park at Lake Erie last night and caught ZERO catfish as usual. I Carolina rigged with a 3way swivel so I could present 2 different baits on each rod. One rod I used cured garlic liver and nightcrawler, the other rod had fresh shrimp and cut bluegill.

    All I managed to catch were a couple sheepshead that took the nightcrawler and shrimp. And like a good sheepshead do, they gut hooked themselves.

    I need to move down to central/southern Ohio. The catfishing up here sucks. And Lake Erie is useless if you don't own a boat. :cursing:

    hey nate,i know what you're saying about cats up north!
    the pond at tall timbers campground in port clinton has a few in it.i caught and released a 5 lb channel there last year and had a hog break my line!people up there don't really concentrate on cats and there are a bunch of ponds around that area.i'd bet you could get permission to fish almost any of them.

    Last night I went out to Buckeye Lake and caught a couple but ran out of bait. Gonna have to take plenty more shad next trip.

    Come on down Nate and I'll be glad to take you out on the boat.
