We had a very good day on the Ohio river yesterday. It took a while to find bait, but after a couple hours we found lots of shad at the end of a private marina. Some of the local pleasure boat owners didn't like us throwing a net in "their marina" and the started yelling at us, but after a few throws I filled the live well with bait and got out of there. We went up river to a place where Vern and I caught some flattys last year around this time. This is a place where big boulders spill down a steep bank, lots of rocks, lots of hiding places. We starting catching fish before I could get my third rod in the holder. We caught about thirty catfish from 5:00 p.m. to midnight. We caught Channels, Blues and a lot of Flatheads. Most of the fish were between 6 to 12 lb. with a few close to 20lb. Some of the flatties were swolen and had hard bellies. I think the spawn close.
