    just curious if anyone has any luck fishing around sandbars.. there is a big bar in the middle of the river at the evansville riverfront that has sparked my intrest.. i took my kids out to play on the bar yesterday [forgot my poles..]] and while out there swimming i seen a nice blue cruising around the point of the bar in about a foot of water!!!! do any of you evansville or henderson guys fish around the sand bars or just head for the deep holes?
