    First of all...HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!! :wink:
    Anybody going fishing tomorrow at the Falls of the Ohio??? I am going with a friend early am to fish for sauger from the bank. Any tips on doing this wil be greatly appreciated as I want to catch more than he does :tounge_out:
    Am I competitive...no, how did you guess. I would rather be at Otter Creek chasing the "Big Blue", but sometimes I have to give in and be nice. Can you catch cats from the bank??
    Help me please...

    I always have wanted to fish for sauger but i don't know much about the ins and outs of it. I would think cats can be caught still there.I talked with those bank fishermen when i was up that way and it seems it was a good way to fish. There were always more people fishing from the bank then in boats. Let the brothers know what you catch. :006:

    Hey Linda good luck at the falls,try using 1/4-3/8 oz.jig head in white or green with a 3 in.curly tail grub.White or pink grubs worked very well for me last spring and fall,give us a report when you get back.

    The river should be on a slight rise there tomorrow and the fishing should be good. Tip your jigs with nightcrawlers and that will help the sauger bite. Good luck to you.

    Went to the Falls bright and early; stayed until about 1:00 pm, caught nothing... There were a lot of folks fishing both on the bank and from boats and did not see any activity anywhere. Oh well, beautiful day and the fossil beds are really awesome. Sue would have been nice to have caught a sauger or two ( or 3 or 4)...

    Linda

    PS..may not have caught anything, but still better than going to the stores for Freaky Friday or Black Friday or whatever they call it..

    I went fishing with skipjack to Madison. We caught 6 Hybrid that we throwed back & a skipjack that was used for bait. I caught a 12#, 32"
    Cat on the first hit. You can look at the photo on my profile under
    Northern Pike album.
