I just found and signed up for this site and am so far impressed with all the great info I've read so far. I have a boat I keep in a marina all year near Cincinnati, and while the boat has been winterized till spring I have been dropping lines off the back for the last few weeks and have been going pretty good considering I can't change location. This week alone I caught 2 channels at 6 lbs each and 4 bluecats at 8, 10, 13 and 18 lbs. Four of the came Tuesday when it was 65 degrees and the others were Thursday. As another thread mentioned the river has been coming up and was at around 40 ft this past week. All cats were caught on shad (4"-6") I caught with cast net thrown from the docks. I don't have current in my marina so I use a one oz. sinker with a leader and 17lb test on ambassador 6500. Two or 3 weeks ago I couldn't catch a cat for anything but caught at least a dozen sauger with the same cat rigs. Now they seem gone again. I've never seen that happen before and I've had my boat there for 4 years.
