Some of these may look familiar from the Bridgapalooza video. Our trip to Defiance, Oh and the Maumee/Auglaise/Tiffin Rivers awhile back. Home of the lonliest Boat ramp in the U.S.
We may have been the only ones to ever use it. Lol

Looks relaxing. This was one of my highlights from today.

I saw a gator floating down my river last week. Although, it was only a blow up one that must have been lost by one of those dreaded recreational boater.s Lol

Can anyone name those fish?
I caught four and a 5 inch Crappie while getting to see a few hundred Blue Herron and Cormorants on the Black river yesterday.
Using 4lb test on my Ultralight made it even more fun. They tended to take me for a Mokai ride for a few hundred feet before they tired out.

The mouth is throwing me off but it looks like a freshwater drum.

Thanks. I was leaning towards a freshwater drum from images on Google. It's been 30 years since I caught one but I think we used to call them Sheepshead. I was taught it was a cross between a Sucker and Carp, not sure how true that is though. We usually caught them while fishing for Carp using dough ball. Landed 3 yesterday while using a 1/32 jig on 4lb test, which made it really fun to bring into the Mokai. Each one was around 25 inches and guessing 4-5-lb.

This is one dam up river from where we used to catch the freshwater drums. If I snagged into this thing, I might end up in Pittsburgh. Lol

Thanks CC-CODER for that interesting clip on the paddlefish. I used to live in Pennsylvania and fished nearly all of the upper Allegheny River from the Kinzua Reservoir spillway on down to East Brady but never saw a paddlefish except in an exhibit (might have been in the old Tionesta fish hatchery).

Wife & I went to church early this past Sunday morning. Afterwards my wife told me "go out and enjoy yourself". So I spent the rest of the day with the Mokai motoring around Pymatuning Lake. I noticed my top speed was down a bit but quickly diagnosed the problem as additional Covid-19 weight.

I was surprised to find the public launch vehicle/trailer parking lot on the Ohio side just south of the "Causeway" was full up. I managed to find a spot to park and spent the day motoring around the lake. About 3:30, I decided to pack it up before all the other boats returned. Motored back to the ramp and counted at least 12 boats waiting to go in. I was guessing I would have to wait hours till I could get in. Much to my surprise, by 4:00 every waiting boat was out of the water and the ramp was clear. So I went in, tied off the craft, and walked toward the lot to get my car and trailer. Thats when I discovered the reason for the crowd. There was a walleye fishing tournament. All boats had to be out of the water by 4:00. Talked to a few of the fellows and was told one guy had brought in a 5 fish, 21#+ total. Impressive.

All of that reminded me of some "unusual" pictures I had taken last year on the lake. My first guess was the result of the boat owner talking to customer service at a company that "shalt not be named" ;D. After a bit, I realized it was "fish habitat" in the making :D.

Thought the tires might be for one of them amphibious vehicles.
I've kayaked the Shenango River and camped near the Pymatuming Lake. Also, grew up 30 miles north of Pgh. (Tarentum)
I ran into a similar situation a few Saturdays past when a Bass tournament qualifier was happening at Westbranch Reservoir in Ohio. Now I Google for fishing tourny's before heading to any lake...learned my lesson.
Thanks for posting the pictures.
