    Way to go Dave, your on those channels pretty good right now. I was fishing White River yesterday with cut creek chubs and for 2 hours it was non stop action, caught probably 16 channels, no huge ones, the biggest weighed in at 8.3lbs on my new digi scale that I tried out for the first time. So the channels are finally active, now I gotta find me a flathead to really get going. Oh yeah, I caught a 10lb channels once on a 5" live bluegill and about a 4lb channel on a live 8" drum over in Illinios one time, they'll take it if they put their minds to it. Tight Lines.

    Leonard hit me up and we will go fishing sometime since nobody seems to want to have another gathering. I can take u to brookville or the ohio river. Fishing has been excellent here at brookville the last couple of weeks. went down to the ohio 2 weekends ago and caught 2 nice blues. Will be going down to fish a local club tournemant at rising sun this saturday. Hoping not to make a donation though. They are having pretty decent turn outs, from what I here 12-14 boats. I could also come up and fish geist if u wanted I havent fished there in about 3 years. The night my buddy ripped his transom out of his boat. We looked back and that 225 had come all the way through the haul on the bottom of the motor mount. So I swore id never go back, butI like to fish up there, there are some real nice cats.

    It seems as though I ALWAYS catch channels when I'm fishin' for flats. But I'm not complainin'. They're just like the ladies, can't stay away from me! :big_smile:
