Well, after approximately 17 hours of kayaking in two days, I'm dragging this morning, but what better way to spend the morning's coffee than post about FISHING! 4/26-Tusc. River First, an experimental section of the Tusc. for chasing flatheads. I was in the east of Coshocton stretch and found it to be a little too fast for my liking. A lot of work to paddle back upstream, but doable! Baits used: Frozen Cut Shad Weights used: 1oz, 2oz bank sinkers Bite Total: 5 Fish Total: 2 channel cats Water Gauge height at time of fish: 2.83ft (I think) Most interesting thing about the Tusc. was the fish either slammed the bait or pulled the tap tap, gone. Both fish came in the end of riffles into deeper slower stretches on an outside bend. Channels were both about 6.5lbs a piece. 4/27-Ohio River Launched the yaks and did some smallie/whitebass fishing in the creeks and after getting bored with that, settled down for cats. Baits used: Frozen Cut Shad/Frozen Chubs Weights Used: 1oz, 2oz, bank sinkers Bite Total: Too many to count Fish Total (b/t two people): 13 channel cats, 5 flatheads, 2 rockbass, 5 smallies, 1 largemouth, and 1 angry softshell! Water Gauge at time of fish: 13ft and some change, 2 gates open at the dam The Ohio river fish are definitely moving, most fish came in deeper sections with the most current. A lot of tapping without takers, but later in the evening the fish started to committ to the bait often times swallowing the hook (silly channels) if you let them run for more than 5-10 secs. Biggest flattie was in the low teens and largest channel was 8, maybe 9 lbs. (didn't weight this one) 2 fish that ended up leaving with the hook both spit up multiple pieces of cut, so they were definitely staying in the area, cleaning house. I will have pics of the Ohio kayak trip up tonight, even the infamous kayak double that had my buddy trying to figure out what the heck to do:tounge_out: Oh, and canadian geese apparently think kayaks are large geese trying to steal their territory. I wish I had a video camera for the "attack" I owe some PM's, will get to those tonight!
