    You're in the neck of my woods Brother. I live in Flatwoods and usually fish the Ohio river from the bank. We'll have to get together sometime!

    Back in the 1960's spent a lot of nights fishing the Little Sandy in the Greenup area but not in years.
    Greenup is in north eastern Kentucky on the Ohio river.

    I usually do good for eater channels in Greenbo. If I had a boat I think I might be able to locate some flatheads in there.
    We'll have to hook up sometime soon and wet a line. I mainly bank fish the ohio river. Do pretty good sometimes there. I have several spots I fish at.
    I come up to catlettsburg to dig green worms a few times during the spring/summer.
    Anytime you wanna hit Greenbo, let me know and we'll go!:wink::big_smile:

    We'll have to hook up sometime. We live pretty close to each other. You ever fish at the Greenup L&D? I go there to get skippies & Shad whenever their running.

    LMAO!!! I know what you mean, I've had my gear ready for a while and been wanting to get out badly. I've only made 1 cat trip this year and got skunked and 1 trout trip and did pretty good.
    You bank fish or boat?
