    Fished where pigeon creek dumps in around downtown last night. A ton of Shad there. I'm guessing all those crazy bright lights on the new bridge had something to do with it. Caught 17 channels in 3 hours. There were a couple people bank fishing that did really well too. I can say I've never seen that big of a Shad ball in my life. Filled my bait buck with one cast of my net. Also caught 5 bass tossing a shakey head between cats.

    those shad are around pretty much till about january. but thats when the bigger skips start moving in. so plenty of bait around. i might be hitting the river up sometime this week around newburgh. im just wondering if the sauger are biting yet.

    I couldn't keep them off my line about a week ago at Newburgh. Try the discharge in downtown Evansville. I always catch a lot right there along with stripers. Just look out for the turds! Oh, all 9 gates open at Newburgh still?
