    The flatheads are starting to come on strong in the upper Ohio river. We caught 4 Thursday evening with the biggest being 26 pounds.

    Tim, welcome to the BOC brother. There is about 3 of us members that fish both the Hannibal and Pike Island pools. Sometimes as far as above the New Cumberland pool. Both tailwaters are usually good as long as you can tolerate the gars and snags. I fish at the mouth of Fish Creek between New Martinsville and Moundsville most of the time.

    Wolfman, thats funny you mentioned the mouth of Fish Creek, thats where I first started catfishing when I was 14. Used to fish he Lions club tourney In the spring every year. Had great luck at the mouth. Im originally from moudsville, Ive done ok a the mouth of big grave creek too,but not as well as fish creek.

    I fished pike island dam last night. Didnt do so well, caught a 20" drum, a 21" carp and a 23" channel cat that crossed two other lines and slapped my mag light into the river. What a night.:crazy:
