    I went out to my spot on the Mon from around 7pm to 11:30 pm lastnight. Tried out a new reel. Caught 5 fish 4 channel cats and one flahead. Caught 3 on night crawler and 2 on cut bluegill. Biggest one was a channel cat right under 14lbs caught on the cut bait. It was around 50 degrees here lastnight with the wind blowing so it was chilly. Gonna try and hit it again tonight if at all possible.

    The mon river here most people dont target just flatheads. Most I have seen or fished with just try for what ever will bite. I usually take 2 or 3 poles and I try different baits thorugh out the time I'm fishing. I wil say that most fish I catch are channel cats. They hit on just about anything. Hell I caught one last month on chicken skin form a bucket of KFC we had with us:confused2:

    I fish in maidsville a good bit. I have a buddy that has property right on the river and he has rod holders set up and lights for night fishing. Pretty sweet set up. I grew up in first ward right up from the dam. I use to fish that streach of water from the water treratment plan to the dam all the time.
