    I've caught tons of channels and a flathead from the Wabash but never one single blue. Do they inhabit the Wabash.

    theres defenitely some nice blues in the wabash. my biggest is a 25# with rod and reel, last week i caught a 40# with a limb line and a live bluegill. rumor has it years ago a guy caught an 80# by the bridge in clinton.

    My fishing partner just settled down with a girl and now I really don't have anyone to fish with anymore so we'll have to set something up. Well I'm still looking for some good flathead spots, the ones I fish the most are in the Georgetown and Lockport area. I've seen a lot of nice flatheads caught by the State Hospital under the highway 35 bridge. I fished there tonight and caught a 8 lb channel and I had a few good bites. I had something large on though and it broke my 65# power pro line.

    Another question, are they going to be in the deeper water or where might they be roaming day and night?

    I have seen some lower 20lb. class blues come from the Wabash in Huntington county.
