11-09 Just as I got my boat to the Cincinnati Public landing a
rain squal came on. I pulled
my car under the bridge and sat it out for about 15 mins. Saw
some shad at the ramp tried to
cast for them on my 2nd cast the rope slipped off my jacket
sleve. I was able to cast a line
to it and got it back. I then went up to the Newport hooters and
noticed the river had more
current than the other day and the wind was a little stronger
blowing up river. Got my lines
in at 08:50 and 08:55 had a channel on the rod. This one was 5.8
pounds 24.5 inches long.
Thawed cut shad was the bait I had at the time. Then at 09;15
caught a smaller channel this
on was only 4.4 pounds. Came in at 23 inches, also took thawed
Then things really got STRANGE. I hooked a very nice Channel
and he wanted to stay down I
tried to work him up and to the outside of the boat. Somehow it
got twisted up with the
other line at the back of the boat. I had moved my dip net up so
I could net the fish. When
I tried to reel in the fish the last few feet I was also pulling
the other line and rod. So
I decieded to moved the other rod to give me some slack on the
fish. Just as it moved it
kicked the dip net over the side. I just saw it out of the
corner of my eye , buy the time I
I reached for it the current pushed it down river and it
sank! So now I was trying lip a 10
pound or better catfish. Needless to say it would not open it's
mouth. When I tried a 2nd.
time, it did a hard flip and snapped the line!. Needless to say
I was not a happy person at
the moment. Lost a good size catfish plus a dip net!
The wind got stronger as I decided to try for some fresh Shad
just up river. The shad were
scatter due to the wind. After about 5 cast only had 5 shad but
they were on the larger
side. Headed back to Hooters , caught a 4.5 pound White perch
(sheephead) on one of the
fresh cut shad. I got my boat out of the water and headed home
at 13:00 Still down about
missing that bigger catfish but did have some action . Tight
lines to all.
