    Went down to the Ohio River on Sunday about 5 a.m. and fished all day until a couple of hours after dark. Was a pretty slow day. Lots of boat traffic and it was hot and sunny but I did catch a 10 lb. blue. Caught him on cut shad on a dropoff in front of where a creek comes into the Ohio. I did find a really good flathead location that is pretty easy to find. There is an island with a sand bar stretching out the back and it is filled with tons on trees and lumber. I really want to try this spot at night sometime.

    Nice blue..I went out last saturday night and got skunked. Had a few runs but kept getting dropped. What part of the Ohio are you fishing? I am right on the Ohio in Evansville.

    I went down to the Ohio River last weekend too. It sucked when I went (friday night) just a few hits was all the action I had all night. Anybody fish the Jefferson and Clark County parts of the river.

    We launched out of lawrenceburg. We have fished this area several times this year and have had some luck. I've also been to several other areas on the Ohio this year and caught some decent fish.
