The major change for this past year was, all my trips were out of a boat. I did some bank fishing but , that was for catching skipjacks form bait. The Ohio River here at Cincinnati was below 28 feet from mid-May till late November. The spring and up till mid-May I did not have any cut bait to use. I therefore had to make do with some unusual baits. This included tuna blood vein, deep fried chicken skin, seasoned cooked and raw steak. Once I did get some shad and skipjacks they became my main sources of bait.

For the year I caught: 12 Blue cats. The largest was 10.7 pounds. 6 Flatheads. The largest was 19.2 pounds. 43 Channel Cats. The largest was 12 pounds. 2 Carp The largest was 7 pounds. 3 Sheephead Perch The largest was 5.3 pounds.

Over the year I was SKUNKED 8 times. That is one thing I want to reduce next year. I normally fish around 4 ½ hours per trip. I believe if the fish are biting that will give me plenty of action. If the fish have lock jaw that day then, I pack it in and head home. I do hope to do better than 2 fish per trip in 2006. I intend to stock up on some more skipjacks for my freezer during February and March. I already have some packets of shad in the freezer, so will have cut bait for my early trips in the spring.
