Wild One - Welcome to the flatlands, Buckeye country, & warmwater fishing. If you liked Crappie, wait until you hook a Largemouth, or better yet a Smallmouth. Also, Carp really are freshwater Bonefish. I had one make an 80 yard run. BUT, there is coldwater fishing, too. The tributeries of Lake Erie are great Steelhead water. There are 3 Trout streams within an hour of Columbus, the Mad being the best of the 3. Check out Mad River Outfitters here in C-bus, great guys and a great shop. If you can't stop by try their site -

The fishing report section covers the Mad (east), the Clearfork (north), & the Erie trib's. Let us know what area you are near & the guys can help you out with good spots to try.
