    I am from Taylorsville and have quite a few spots in the local area. E-Mail me. Cattin is slowing this time of year though.

    Fish the Ohio river around Louisville area, good fish and good areas to fish.

    Darryl, I was going to say, that you could launch at one of the two locations at Cloverport. Either the town ramp, which is kinda rough, but right into the Ohio, Or at the really good ramp at Clover Creek, but you have a small run down the creek to get to the Ohio. Either way there is some excellent catfishing at the bends both above and below Cloverport. You could also fish there off the bank close to the town ramp. The last time I was there I saw some guys bankfishing there. I don't know if they caught anything, but it is some good water. You can likely get shad with a castnet at the creek ramp also, if you needed bait. Vern

    Darryl, Clover Creek ramp is located just south of cloverport from US 60. I'm not sure of the road number, but I think it's like 109? it's the same road that takes you into Cloverport from Leitchfield. Vern

    He's a good one to listen to Darryl. He's the best fisherman that I have ever met and I not just saying that because I'm married to him:smile2: . He knows his stuff. I know of several people(including me) that have got their PB by listening to him.
