    In my opinion thats the only way to go for cats on the Ohio. "NIGHT" Try the mouth of feeder creeks. Flats are a good spot and around shore those big flatheads will come out and feed around there. Go out in the main river for channels and blues. (((Stay out of the barge lanes))) Don't spend to much time in one spot if your not getting bites or fish within 30 minutes or so i would move.Try out where the river drops off from shallow to deep , the ledges. Place baits on the different depths up these ledges.By trying different things you will soon learn where they are at at different times. {{{Keep a mental log to write down Date, Time , weather and water conditions}}} Course i don,t do this lol just keep it simple and have some fun. :smile2:

    Not much to add, that is all very good info on techniques. I will say to be extra safe; lighting is very important on the river at night

    My wife has some relatives in Owensboro. Could we do some fishing while she spends the night with her relatives. We're from New Albany.
