    Fished the Mon. on Sunday. Several nice channel cats, avg. 14 in. Very healthy looking. Bait of choice was the ol' nightcrawler. 8ft of water near shore with rock structure. Fished near Maxwell Lock at Green Cove. Rt 88 near Fredricktown. 5pm till 8 pm was best action. River was real busy with pleasure craft. Very annoying. Fish commission should give us catters a section of our own. Ya, sure they will! All fish were catch an' release.

    Good catchin',

    No pics. Take Rt. 70 to Speers exit. Follow Rt. 88 which runs along the Mon. Through Fredricktown to 10 Mile Creek bridge. Make right at bridge. Takes you to a public launch in a park. 10 Mile Creek gives you access to the Mon. Do not let the word creek fool you. It is wide enough and deep enough for a fishing boat and has some good fishing if you don't want to be on the river when it gets busy.

    Good catchin'

    I have heard of 15-20 lb flatties on bluegill from shore right by the 10 mile creek boat launch. A guy I work with says he goes there often and has fair luck, it's a nice place to fish, benches and tables available and even restrooms. just don't leave that big bait out there while you go to drop a deuce !!!

    Joe,
    Caught some 14 to 18 inch cats in the 10 Mile Creek and a few small carp. Heath is right on the money with his description of the nice area next to the boat launch. Have had most of my success on the opposite side of the park next to the sandstone structure at the base of the steep drop off. You need a boat to get to it. 10 Mile Creek is easy fishing with a small boat and electric motor.
    Good catchin'
