    hello everyone, i was just wondering if anyone could tell me some good places to fish in the ohio river.... Me and my boyfriend love catfishing but we mostly fish paylakes and lakes closer to home.... Iam sick and tired of paying to fish and not catching anything..... My biggest fish ever was a 35 lb blue... I was told there is some really good fishing in the ohio river but iam from inez (martin county) KY. Does anyone know any good spots to fish???? plz let me know..... thanks

    From shore if u can find the Old Wickets with structure or the wing dams.

    Wish I could help more but I only fish the NE section of Ohio on the Big River.

    FRESH Cut Shad and Skipjacks can be better bait alot of the times.

    Tabitha Welcome to the BOC/SOC. I could give you info on the Smithland Pool of the Ohio, but that is probably to far south for you. I look forward to reading your posts.:0a22::0a25::0a25:
