  1. It was a blast Friday Mike. I’m ready to go again now. Thanks for playing guide for the day. We’ll get 40 next time.

  2. Like you my dad and I have a passion for trophy class largemouth bass. But we take a little different approach for these hunts, we fish from float tubes aka belly boats. The reason for this is our budget and for the easy access to these 65 to 250 acre upground reservoirs in Ohio. My dad has unlocked a secrete to the potential state record largemouth bass that live in these upgrounds in Ohio, we have come close over the past 2 years and we are nipping at the heels of that record. You can see the trophies we have been blessed to land @ http://www.youtube.com. you can find us under TeamBASS2000, and take a look at our channel to see almost all the bass we have hooked and landed in the past few years. Thank, Mark & Arron

    • Mark and Arron,

      Thanks for following my blog. I will definitely be keeping an eye on you guys for that next state record! Those are some giants you guys have caught.

    Mike,

    This is Greg Kimmel’s brother. I just wanted to tell you I enjoy reading your blogs. Taking a break at work to read some of them. I have never had much success catching bigger bass in Ohio but also fail to get out there as much as I would like for sure. Anyway, next time you need a partner in the Upper area or anywhere in the surrounding areas I would love to hit the waters with you. Greg said you were going to hit up our resevoir sometime.

  4. Hey Brian, thanks for following the blog! Yeah, I am really looking forward to fishing your lake. You need to get on your brother about setting up a date, and the three of us can get out there. Sounds like it has some big largemouth, and some great shoreline cover to fish.

    Mike, I checked out the website for the first time today- awesome! So jealous of all the big fish! The story about Soloman, awesome as well! I have talked to people that say they have seen or caught ten pounders in Ohio, and I always declare Shananagans! That cat is for real! I snuck into a local golf course with a buddy of mine (one time lol) and caught a 7 11, with one eye! Imagine how big that 15 year old monster would have got with both eyes. See you on the water-

    • Steve, thanks for your support! I’m with you…10 lbers are beyond rare in Ohio. Send me a picture of that giant you caught at Dillon a couple of years ago and I’ll get it posted in the Photos section.

    Mike, After reading the latest 2012 research about hydrogen peroxide use to oxygenate livewell water you might reconsider or at least present the scientific facts. The infomercials and advertisements about H2O2 are great sales tools, but science presents a a more realistic picture of the chemical:

    TPWD, Inland Fisheries Division, San Antonio, TX Publication by Fishery Biologist Randy Myers 2-14-2012 Hydrogen Peroxide – A total of 12 one-hour experiments were conducted with oxygen levels measured every 10 minutes.
    http://www.slideshare.net/raminlandfish/hydrogen-peroxide-for-bass-boat-livewells

    • Muton, thanks for sharing this study. It is certainly a compelling argument against the effectiveness of Hyrdogen Peroxide in livewells for long periods of time. However, from my understanding of the short study summary, the H202 did increase oxygen levels for 30-50 minutes. That could be the difference between weighing a dead fish or not. The study also did not indicate that their is proof that the H202 caused harm to the bass. On the other hand, we do know that low oxygen levels in the livewell certainly has negative health effects on bass. The study also suggests the use of an oxygenating system. I am a total advocate of this idea, but in reality, I don’t know anyone who has one of these systems installed. Thanks again for posting the link, I appreciate your support of Ohio Bass Blog!

    Hey everyone, Im a complete addict when it comes to bass fishing. I do ok in ponds where I consider fishing to be two dimensional but I really struggle sometimes especially this tme of the year(late summer) when i take my boat out. I consider Delaware and O’Shaughnessy my home water. I’d really like to find someone that knows these lakes well that may have some tips for breaking down the water on any given day.I’m usually out fishing all weekend and lately things have been tough. Seems like any bite that I do get comes in the first 2 hours of daylight and then I’m lost. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be awesome.

  18. Johnathan Ogg

    Awesome site Mike. Thanks for coming down and showing us up on Griggs! You have a real passion and I appreciate the information and opportunity to read your blog and meeting you on the water. Now, if you and Bill get something going in the summer for O’Shay Sunday mornings make sure to let me and all of your followers on OBB know!
