    So i went out on the ohio river today put in about 11 and left atoun 6. spent all day fishing and running to different spots that always produce and fishing some deep holes up by the power blant on the back sides of the pylons man those are big and the water is deep. got checked by the game warde i was all leagal and he wanted to know if my drift buckets were minnow buckets guess he wanted to see my bait. anyhow all day fishing and only caught 1 fish and it was around a 5-6 pound striper my first striper but no cats today. most places i didnt even get a bit guess the weather is messin with them i dont know but may leave the boat at home next week gettin expensive to nat catch anything. oh well i will find them one day just gonna keep hunting.:sad2:

    Sunday was also bad for me. First I couldn't find any bait and then spent about 6 hours for a 2 1/2lb Flat. Bad Day

    I fished all weekend and didn't catch not one catfish. The only fish we did any good catching was the bluegill bait:angry_2: Oh well at least the mosquito's were giving consistent bites.

    Well, It's good to know it wasn't just me...

    Sat: Found bait np. Five hours & two small bites. No fish. (Kosmosdale area)

    Sun: Couldn't find bait, Finally netted one moon eye. Drifted three hours & only caught 2 blues. 4 & 11 lb. (New Albany area)

    Great weather for the fishermen, but not for fishing. (I'm guessing)

    from wh at i was told yesterday was the day to be out on the water. i know a guy that did exceptionally well in all the spots he tried down this way. but thats just it ..when i dont go out the fish start biting really good. i think its about time i hung up the rods and get out the guns.

    Take it from someone stuck on the bank. TAKE THE BOAT! I'd rather spend money on fuel and come away empty handed knowing I tried every spot I knew than come away empty handed after trying the only spot available where I'm at.
