    Floated and fished 2 rivers here this past weekend. The Hocking on Saturday with my wife and the Scioto on Sunday with my son. Did 12 miles on the Hocking, spent the night and did some fishing. Wasn't a very productive night, ended up with a channel that might've weighed a lb and a flattie that went 5 lbs. We got home around noon on Sunday. My son said he wanted to float a river so we decided to try the Scioto. Headed to wallyworld to get a castnet for catching bait. Got on the river around 5 pm, floated for a couple hours and decided to start trying to catch some bait. Having never thrown a castnet before wasn't too sure we'd get enough bait for the night. I ended up with 5 shad, a 12" sauger and an 18" gar and that was the extent of using the net. While i was doing this my son was fishing with a roostertail and catching whitebass. I'm glad he was doing that cause that was the biggest part of our bait for the night. My son ended up catching the big fish for this trip with a 26" channel. We caught a total of 6 channels Sunday night, lots of run and drops and 1 worn out dad. Got a pic of son with the channel but its too big. I can resize it but i would either cut off sons head or 3/4 of the cat. Anyone willing to help me send me a pm would love to see the pic on here.
