    I haven't fished the ohio yet since i've been back to the states, but we used to fish down by anderson ferry and points west from there. anderson ferry can be a bit muddy though sometimes. produces some decent cats in the 10-30lb range. at least it did for my buddies. my only big fish out of there gave me a face full of hook and sinkers when the hook popped loose on him.

    but yeah, we did decent there up to six years ago.

    Rick, don't forget about the Ken-tuck side of the river. You will have to get a license, But they seem to have alot of public areas on that side of the river.

    You can fish the main stem of the river on the Ky side with an OH license. We don't care, we'll let you Buckeyes fish over here...:roll_eyes::wink::smile2:
