SE Ohio, checking in!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm Jordan. 

I'm brand-new to fishing, even though I'm from rural Ohio and am 32 years old.  lol

I've recently purchased my rod, reel and some tackle and have been out fishing four times thus far with my younger brother.  We're sharing equipment until the first of September.  I'm currently rocking a 6.5' Blackout Medium rod and a Penn Battle II 4000 reel strung with some 12lb Trilene XT.

We've hit up the Muskingum river here in town as well as hit up some of the ponds/lakes up in the AEP ReCreation Lands near McConnelsville. 

So far, I've managed to catch one catfish (with a 4-8ft crank - go figure) and one small bass (just caught that today). 

Mostly I joined up here because I'm looking to learn about fishing and hone my skills as well as share my experiences.

Here's a link to my Flickr albums - I have an album for each time we've gone fishing.  https://www.flickr.com/photos/cybrslydr/albums

Here's the first-ever bass I caught today - 28655416380_cef72faead_h.jpg

I hope you enjoy my pictures and I hope to learn a lot from you folks!  :)

Welcome Jordan, enjoy the forums! Looks like you fish some small waters like I do frequently. I've found that casting weightless flukes (slugos as we used to call them) and then swimming them very slowly while giving them a pop or two to make them dart up off the bottom will frequently cause a strike. After that pop, ensure you let that fluke settle to the bottom.  Make sure to rig that weedless as it looks like you have a fair amount of moss or vegetation in the lakes. This technique can be effective with flukes, senkos, creatures, etc. Have fun, enjoy!
