2018 Fish Ohio Master Pin

I have been chasing the Fish Ohio Master pin since 2012 and this year I got my third one in seven years. If your into angling and enjoy the challenges that fishing brings I would encourage you to try and accomplish this task. I set out with wanting to get at least ten different species this year but came up short on that goal but I did manage to get a personal best of five different species and in some cases such as crappie, bluegill and catfish I caught multiple fish that qualified for the Fish Ohio pin.


Indian Lake 1/5/19

Fished over at Indian Lake this evening, the water is like a bowl full of chocolate milk but with with warmer weather  I couldn’t resist the temptation to get a line wet. Got this one on my second cast and after that couldn’t get a bite. There was probably another 15 people fishing along the bank and didn’t see any other fish brought in the whole time I was there.

Cherry Mead

I have been looking for a few hobbies to get into till the weather decides to either get cold and stay cold so I can go ice fishing or till early spring when the ice starts coming off the lakes. So I decided to get into making mead and wine as a new hobby and today I made my first double batch of Cherry Mead using a recipe I modified from


1 Gallon of Water
3 Lbs of Honey
1/2 pound frozen black cherries
1 cup of orange juice
1 packet of champagne yeast
1 tsp of yeast booster
1/2 tsp pectic enzyme
1 cinnamon stick


Sanitize everything that is going to come in contact with your must, I use onestep.
Then fill your gallon jug slightly over 1/2 the way up with water and add your 1 cup of OJ. Then add your 3 pounds of honey and yeast booster. Place lid on jug and shake vigorously until the honey dissolves into the the water. After the honey is dissolved into the water add your 1/2 pound of cherries, pectic enzyme and cinnamon stick into the jar and fill the rest of the way up with water (Make sure you leave enough head space to allow room for when you pitch your yeast and the gases made from the yeast don’t force your airlock out or worse cause your jug to explode.) and shake your jug vigorously until everything is mixed well. I then placed my jug in hot water in the sink till I got the temperature up to 75 degrees.
Follow the instructions on your yeast pack and pitch the yeast when ready. Seal the jug with a stopper and airlock.

I use the large mouth 1 gallon glass jar instead of the standard 1 gallon glass jug because its easier to get the fruit in and also its easier to clean afterwards.
