Buckeye Quarry 3/26/19

Got off work a few hours early and decided to give it another try over at the quarry. After being skunked on the previous three tries I ended up with 3 nice trout for the day.

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.
