A Satisfied Customer

On Friday August 12, 2011, my son (Mike Fry, 14 years old), my husband, and I went fishing on the Ohio River Bank near Dilles Bottom Ohio. My husband left one pole to re-bait another. My son yelled “Dad! You have a bite!” My husband told him to grab it, and reel it in. My son picked up the pole, which was strung with 8 lb test Eagle Claw line, set the hook, and thought he got a snag. My husband took the pole. It wasn’t a snag. He had hooked a fish, and the fish started running the drag. He handed the pole back to my son. After a grueling battle, he landed a 37″ 23# Channel Catfish.

The Holy Carp

My friend Chris and I decided that we would go fishing for perch on Edgemere road. We had caught 20 perch before it began to rain.  As we were packing up I noticed that my light action rod was being dragged into the water. I ran over and picked the rod up, set the hook, and felt what I thought was a whale.  It took a grueling 45min to real in this mud puppy! I was forced to run up and down the road to avoid running out of line or snapping the 4lb test. When I finally landed the monster it felt like a cylinder block. It ended up weighting 53.4lbs.
