    Try fisherman's Point over by the Falls of the Ohio. Go down stream a little ways where a creek comes out. It is pretty good there.

    Hey Guys
    Welcome to the BOC/SOC. Lot of fine people and info on here. Think a lot of the people have hibernated through this cold snap we been having.
    Welcome aboard.

    From what I know you cant get over behind the locks anymore since they started puting the new one in. The place to go for Bank fishing is the Indiana side as stated before. You can use or Ky Licience. Try the fossil beds or the Hydro plant area off Harrion Ave. Also try Cox's or right down Bye the Bell even on the KY side.
