    I fished all Day on Thursday...Daylight to dark. 2 Locations. Above the Meldahl Dam in the higginsport area and below the dam down near the 275 bridge. I can tell ya this much...NOAA is full of s**t. Their charts are just flat out wrong and thier predictions are getting to be as bad as our weather forecasters ! The current was supposed to be near a 110 kcfs for thursday above the dam and there was practically none. Not enough to anchor the boat correctly so we pulled out and went down towards cincy. There was better current there.
    On the bait, we had fresh cut and live shad,and some frozen skips. We landed one blue around the 20lb. mark and one flathead about 8-9 lb.s. These were in the morning above the dam. Then we landed one stinkin channel around 6lb.s below the dam with a cut shad. The blue and flat were both on skip.
    A note on the NOAA thing. I don't know how many of you "rely" on there graphs and predictions but I do know some people who drive long distances to fish based on their predictions. I am going to call them today,if possible and see if I can find out what is going on. They used to be real good and now they must have some kind of problem. If I find anything out I will let everyone here know....Randy

    I am headed to the river right after i go seine some creek chubs. I want to thank all you guys for posting, it has helped greatly!. Now i know that i'll have more luck with live and cut bait. With the rain and stronger current I might have a good chance at landing 20+ pounder which i have not done yet this year. Also since everyone has been so good with posting, I want you all to know that i am a certified mechanic with 23 years experience. I have my own garage and is my only income. If anyone needs help with their cars,trucks,boat motors anything, feel free to ask anytime. Most problems i could talk you through it on here or on a phone. Just trying to do a little pay back. Thanks again guys!
