    Went to Yellowbank downstream in Meade Co Friday. Put in on Yellow Bank Creek, went towards the Ohio and when we reached the mouth, she was a beast, just daring us to to take our "little" boat out. The wind and current was sucking us out into the river, but we were able to get back into Yellow Bank Creek. Fished there no luck. Saturday night made up for Friday. Went downstream from West Point and fished on the iN side at about 30 feet. Caught 5 nice cats, 1 Blue, 1 Flathead, and 3 channels. No trophy size, but all within 1-4 lbs. Perfect for fileting and they are now in my fridge soaking in salt water, Yum. With the water level going down some, more stick-ups are visible, nasty ones that could tear a boat up. Be careful, especially at night.

    That's a good catch Linda. Atleast somebody's reelin' em in... cause it ain't me.

    I'm always looking for new places to put in the boat. How does one get to Yellow Bank, from let's say West Point? Is it past Brandenburg?
