    Hello , new to the botherhood. I am an avid catfisher but wondering on a few things. Went to the Ohio River Thanksgiving weekend caught a 30 pounder and a 15 and 22 pounder, but was at the dam in Cannelton, is the fishing any good around the bridge and futher down anywhere ,would like to get away from the dam and try somewhere else. Any one got any info on the river to help. Catman47 [James]

    there is great fishing from cannelton dam all the way to lewisport. just have to try diff spots. cant give ya my special ones but if u look around u will find some dep holes and structure. hope to c u at the tourny in cannelton jan 18th. i got 1st place in cannelton in october tourny and i also won big fish and my big fish didnt come from the dam. dnt get me wrong i caught a 27 up there but then the bites just shut off. everyone at the tourny was at the dam and after 4 hrs without a hit we left. we went on down river and landed a 10 and a 35 pound blue. there is fish everywhere in hawesville. my pb 48 came from lewisport area. the fish in my pic is 35 from hawesville. thats the hawesville bridge in the back ground
