    thanks everyone
    hey Tim , we were about 3 miles south of the fort , and found a little cut out with a good eddie , was use'n some minnows on a drop shot rig try'n to find some white bass or skippys . my son's cell phone sreens got a crack in it we could only see the very bottom of the picture till we emailed it to a computer . I'm ready to get down to the ohio in may now and catch some more .

    hey Tim that sounds good to me . that spot might be gone when the water goes down . Ben better get a boat if he's gonna get to that spot , it would real hard to fish from the bank .
