    Leroy, I assume you were fishing below the dam, were you fishing the eddy, the current break or the current on the KY side, or were you fishing the lock on the IN side? Vern

    My father and I fished out of Clovercreek Monday evening. I caught two blues one was 20+ and the other was around four pounds. We were using live and cut shad we caught out of clovercreek and fishing heavy current in the main channel. Vern

    Darryl I was in my boat but we were fishing above the dam. The depths are in the fifties or so off them rocks as far as I can tell from the bank. I have never fished below Cannelton in my boat. We were fishing the stretch where the mouth of clover creek dumps into the Ohio. Vern

    well Im back and did I get wet lol. but anyways the barge repair boat is finely gone now and all the gates were open. I lost 2 and missed a few so I tried a circle hook on my rods and never lost one after that. I ended up with 7 blues all in the 2 to 4 lbs range. turned out to be a great day although I went through a lot of weights.

    Went to cannelton today . I did not get a bite below the dam. there was 15 to 20 boats on the water. I didn't see anyone catching any sauger. I decided to try the front side of the dam, in that resticted area and i got 2 real good pulls. learn something today when using circle hooks don;t use the bait clicker. Darryl
