Great Miami River 3/16/19

The Great Miami river was on fire today, caught about 20 shorts and ended up with 3 keepers that where all 18 inches or better. The water level was up and they were biting on the white slushy big joshy swim bait.

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.
