    I went and took the motor off my boat today. The White came up 5-6' overnight. No fishing for me.

    Fished the Ohio yesterday near Lawrenceburg. The debris was UNREAL!...but we still managed to catch about 8 fish. Biggest was an 18lb blue. Caught some skippies too for the freezer. The water levels were good, just a TON of debris.

    I went fishing with Scott yesterday and he is not kidding about the debris. Here are a few debris pictures.

    We fished the Ohio last night til morning with Aaron and my cuz. Aaron caught a 8# blue and that was it the bite was awful but had a good time. There was some debris that came down patches but the current was decent.

    we tore them up on friday when the water was rising and caught several 20 22 21 18 28 and the biggest 31 not to mention all the 5 to 15 pounders you could ever catch. The river was dangerous thoe i never seen so much debre floating down the river at one time. The town of madison closed the boat ramp on me while i was fishing. They made it so i couldnt get my boat out of the river. Had to end up cutting the lock to get out thought it was a bunch of bs.
