    I think the idea of a fishing tourney sounds good...little competition is good for the soul. Maybe this can be the beginning of a group getting together once a month or so to fish and swap tales with each other!!! Drink a cold beverage afterwards and have a good time!! :big_smile:

    I am on call for the hospital the week-end of June 21-22 which means I have to live by the phone. Any other time would be great!!

    :0a28:Well we did'nt get much of a responce for the get together at West Point but those of you who did and still want to do this it's fine with me. Maybe we can just post a big sign out by the road."LOL":0a23:The tourney is a great ideal. According to the paper the river has settled down a bit. I will let you guys decide on a time and date. I can take off from work any day of the week.:003:.Just one of the benifits of doing your own thing.

    I will be arriving in Brandenburg Fri. evening. I will keep a watch on this post and try and make it over to meet and greet!! My father-in-law lives in Doe Valley and I will probaoly bring him along. Talked to catsey last night and he has room for one to fish. May need to try and hook up with someone else also if possible so the father-in-law can fish also. Hope to see you all there. I will probably be in Brandenburg until 7/3.

    There plenty of good bank fishing near the boat ramp. Just a reminder for all bringing boats there is a $ 3.00 launch fee. I am sure that we will be able to find a boat ride if someone needs one. RiverRat if you see this please give us river update. tkx I think the meeting place would be the boat ramp parking lot. Any other suggestions?

    :tounge_out: No the meeting place will be the parking lot for the boat ramp at Westpoint, KY. Comming from the South on 31W look for the FT Duffield sign on the right as you enter town. Comming from Louisville it will be on the left. Follow the road to a Y about 150 ft. then bear to the left and follow to the ramp.

    As of tonight, the river is awesome! She is down and the current has calmed down. We went out sunday, I got skunked but my buddy caught 2 flat heads, not real big, but he beat me! A lot of folks fish where the Salt and Ohio meet. You also have upstream at the LG&E plant. Couple of weeks ago, saw some guys fishing upstream from LG&E and they were bringing them in. You can go downstream to where the "Old Dam House" is. Large Brick building on the IN side before you get to Otter Creek. We have had good luck there. Friday will be your best bet, 70% chance of storms Saturday. I will not be able to make it this time...going to a BOC gathering at Rocky Point Marina which is at the Cannelton Dam Fri, Sat, and Sun. Please catch a big one for me!!! Let's do this again in July, maybe the 18th. Put the boats in at Salt River, fish then I can have wood gathered for a bon fire on my beach. Sandy and plenty of room for boats to pull up around midnight, swap stories, then those who wish to fish more, go for it.
    Everybody be careful and stay safe.
