Yes. This is probably one of the worst things that can happen to Ohio. Say good bye to the fishin. I knew it'd happen eventually, but this was fast.

Where'd your buddy hear it? Any evidence? Not questioning what you heard, I'd just like to hear more.

Just walked in the door from shooting the Ohio. We filled two barrels tonight, mostly buffs and gar. We saw one bighead and two silvers. Theyre coming for Ohio waters! Jericho is 100% correct, silvers are the worst thing that can happen to our fisheries.

I've got an opportunity to help out on a deep water trawl of the Ohio. It should be pretty neat to see species I never really get to see. If I can make it happen, I'm going. I'll be sure to take a lot of photos of the sampling. We should turn up some neat stuff. I'll keep whoever is interested posted. There may be room for one more.

They're rewriting The Fishes of Ohio and are more so after non game species. They're sampling the entire Ohio river, bordering Ohio of course, so yeah, it should be very cool.
I just hope it all works out so I can get on the boat.

Keep me posted Jericho...I am intersested to see what you find. We saw 2 silvers and a bighead Wednesday night when we shot the Ohio. We weren't far from you, right on the border.

I am headed to Louisville on Friday night to shoot bigheads. We should lay the smackdown on them, the guys down there have been shooting alot of them lately!
