    Whats up bud... I'm limited to weekend fishin' for awhile now.

    lol, damn this cold weather man, but I'll be hitting the Ohio on as many weekends as I can thru the winter so get ready for that last minute phone call- no excuses :wink:

    I've been invited to S. Carolina so I'm tossin' that possiibility around in my semi balding head also.... I'll just have to fly down so I can get there, fish, and get back in 2 1/2 days....:confused2:

    Nevermind....I had boat issues this morning and couldnt get out. Did get it started, just not till about 1:00pm. Just a word of advice to others. Get some of those "mickey mouse ears" for your outdrive and warm up your boat before leaving the house(esp. on a cold morning). My boat has never taking a crap on me before, had no reason to believe it would. But the fact I always warm it up before leaving saved me a pointless drive down to the river today.

    Pat I hope you caught six 20+ and had a blast! I know tbull had a good day yesterday up around Natti. Hope that big blue, cold water bite is in full effect.

    Good luck to you brother.....I hope you catch the mother of all Bluecats!!! We have left our Flathead hole and started after the Blues in our winter time hole. So far a 16.9lb'er by Griz and several smaller ones. Hopefully we will connect soon with a Monster. We have all winter ahead of us and hopefully it will prove to be a great time!!!!:big_smile:

    Man that sucks....I've had a rough year too. Matter of fact thats how I stumbled upon this website, looking for answers to my fishing woes. The river itself hasnt been much help either. The good news, got some rain/snow headed our way for the next fews days. Then supposed to be nice towards then end of the week and into the weekend. Give it another shot I guess and just hope things change. Good luck brother!

    Well Steve-0 , I dont know! A year ago today I caught a 68# er I have had the worst yr. I have ever had... To answer your question theres a little current,not much though ! Water temp. was 48. Your right they should be really turning on right now... I think the water has been low so long and plenty of bait in the river, there just not hungry ? Any Ideas ??? :confused2:
