    Hello All:


    My friend and I were looking to make a trip down to the Cincy area and I wondered if anyone could recommendd some good spots to fish from the shore on eithr the OH or KY side. We'd like to target blues. Also, if anyone could give us a report on how the fishing has been lately, that would be cool to. Thanks

    Were you can fish is at the Newport landing and fish the mouth of the licking river. I have located a lot of fish there and have heard of some nice blues coming from there. Good Luck:0a23:

    Hey Mike and Dave:

    Thank you for your responses. We're gonna head down in about 2 weeks. Hopefully, the blues will be on the bite.

    Judging from this post I would have to say the blues are starting to hit in the Cincy area.

    As far as bank fishing areas I have no clue. There is a public ramp right behind the ball parks in downtown. don't know if the bank fishing is good there or not.

    Hey Mike:

    I live in Monroe, with the River Raisin flowing right through my backyard. Unfortunately, no flatheadas or blues in the river. You say you've got a killer spot in Erie? As in Erie, MI? Where do you live now?

    I live in LaGrange KY.about 8-10 min. from the Ohio river,just moved here 2mo.ago.Have you ever fished at the hot water discharge at the end of Erie rd.ext.5 off 75?The lake might be too cold right now but it really turns on in the spring after the walleye run in the D.R./maumee rivers.The white bass fishing is insane there also,Ihave had 100 fish days throwing small castmasters.

    Mike:

    I've nveer fished that spot before. I'll have to try it sometime. Thanks for the tip. Do they get flatheads out in that area? I usually fish the Maumee near Grand Rapids a lot and then locally on the Raisin. How far are you from Cincinnati?

    Sorry no flatties just channel cats that I have caught,if you try it it is best to wade out to the first sand bar on the s. side of the discharge.I live about 1hr.20min. from cinci.
    Good Luck Mike
