    Rat, I have taken many skunkings in the last month, your experience today is why I am not fishing yet, another week or 2 and things should tyrn around and stay good thru the fall.

    I'm praying to the fishing gods that my spot is low enough to get to the prime fishing spot this Sunday. You're more than welcome to meet up with us if you want. Will be me & my neighbor and maybe a few BoC guys if they're down for it.

    This spot has failed to produce for me, yet.

    Nope, not on a boat. And we'll be down on River Rd just a little bit past Heritage Park. From there it's a little walk. I won't go into anymore detail as I don't want the spot anymore known than what it already is. :smile2:

    Last time we went my buddy lost a reeeeeeeeally good size flathead at the bank because of him rolling around. Big channels come out of the spot, and I'm 120% positive there's big flatheads in there. I've had runs on them but I've never had the appropriate gear to get them in - I can't wait until the next hawg makes the mistake of biting down now!

    Aaron when your having those kind of nights have you tried to cut the baits such as the large chubs an see what happens? I was on the Muskingum one night an we were fishing with no bites. I decided to cut the chubs an caught two flats. The others with me caught zero on live baits.
