    Just wondering if anyone is catching any numbers yet? I've been to the Ohio River and Greenbo within the past week(I'm a bank fisher). Caught 1 small 2-3lb channel at Greenbo and got skunked at the river. I'm thinking of going to Yatesville Lake tomorrow night after work and see what happens there. Anyone know if there's any flats in Yatesville? I know that Greenbo stocks channels but I'm not sure what Yatesville stocks. I've heard there's not any Flatheads in Greenbo but I spoke with a man this past Sunday night who says his dad caught a 33lb flathead from Greenbo and that he'd caught a 15lb channel. Could be blowin smoke, who knows.

    Yeah I think the record here in Kentucky is 32lbs for a channel, someone correct me if I'm wrong. I was thinking a 15 channel was pretty darn big for Greenbo Lake, but stranger things have happened.

    Me and Mankind caught 10 Flatties, 1 blue & 1 channel Tuesday night on the Ohio. Biggest was the Blue, 8lbs.

    There are Flatties in Yatesville, never caught any but their in there. Mainly Channels but there are some Flatties.

    The 33lb Flat from Greenbo....:roll_eyes::smile2::smile2::smile2: I highly doubt it. There have been a few illegally stocked in there but thats it and they may not be there now. The 15lb channel is possible, Mankind has caught some nice ones out of there years ago. Biggest I've pulled out was 6lbs.
    I like Greenbo, nice place to fish and If I ever decide to keep any to eat they'll be from there.:cool2:

    Yep, 32lbs is the record here. I know where he caught it, fished close to there many times.
    The 15lb Channel out of Greenbo is definitely possible, not too likely now but possible.

    Yatesville has flatties in it for sure, a few years ago there was a 37#er caught down there. There are some good cats in Yatesville.

    10 blues ,1 channel and some white's Fri night @ Barkley dam .My wife and I fished a little creek last night that dumps into the ky . We each caught a few small bass up to 10 in. some gills and I caught about an 8 in. STRIPER guess it may have been an accidental from when they stocked the KY with whites a couple yrs ago .Post some pics later
