    Made my first to the Ohio last night .Caught a couple of small flatheads and a gar. Really was a nice night to be on the water, hope to get back in a day or two.

    We fished from the Owensboro bridge up to OMU. First trip I didn't want get real adventurous. I'd say that water could get mean quick.

    The first time I went night fishing in a boat on the Ohio, I have to admit, I was scared. Now that I am used to it, the beauty and serenity of fishing at night makes it well worth it. Wait until you see a shooting star for the first time. AWESOME :big_smile: However, she demands your 100% attention and respect every second you are out there, as do the barges. Never let your guard down, she is unforgiving. I like listening to the critters on the shoreland.

    Be Safe

    I was fishing down river 10 or 15 miles from the West Point boat ramp. I don't know why but i never noticed the fog come in while i was fishing. I tell you no lie you could not see anything it did'nt matter if i turned the spotlight on or off. It was scary the only way i knew which way i was going was by the river current. It took me a few hours to do those miles back to the ramp.
