well it's the end of july, a time when i am usually not doing a lot of catfishing (in the daylight hours at least), and i have had one of the best catfish weekends ever! i got to fish 3 days on the ohio and had a great time. friday evening, my friend dale and i went over below cannelton l&d(duh) and planned on fishing that evening and camping on the sand bar and fishing the next morning back on the rocks. we got quite soaked but had one heck of a time. dale was kinda new to this kind of fishing so it was fun showing him some of the ins and outs. he caught several smaller blues and flats. he caught the first one on my pole while i went to the truck for some more colas. i told him he couldnt count it cuz it was caught on my rod. eventually i decided he could count it as half a fish. lol. anyway i caught a few but i was having more fun watching him. he had a ball! so, this GOD awful storm rolls in and we wade it out. i didnt know about camping but dale was game so i couldnt wimp out. that was the worst rain storm i have ever fished through! i know we spent at least 1 hour under a make shift canopy attached to hatch of my jeep just staring at empty rod holders. we did finally get to fish off the sandbar but the only thing biting was gar. the next morning was a totaly different story. we went back to the rocks and caught the crap out of them! the current was barely coming out of the dam and i began casting right out in front of the first gate. the flats were on a tear! i caught 4 flats on 4 casts. that is the most flats i have ever caught at one time. we wound up catching several blues too. the sirens then began to go off and the current came rolling out and that was the end of that but man what a time we had! we had several smaller fish on the stringer and we released a few larger ones. here are some pics. oh yeah and to top it all off a guy pulled up in a boat and asked if we wanted some fish and we said sure. i assumed he had one or two. he gave us 2 channels and 6 healthy blues! we cleaned fish til i thought my arm would fall off!
