    Sunday Dave (skipjack) and I hit the Ohio. We launched out of the Milton KY ramp loaded for bear. After netting way more shad than was possible to keep alive, we went to a spot and anchored. We sat there for 45 minutes without a bite and moved to another location. We sat there fora couple of hours, catching two blues in the 8 to 10 pound range. We then headed for more bait and this time rationing our catch a little. We moved to our third location. This is where we stayed until the night was over, but not until we landed five channels and 3 more blues. One of the blues Dave got was in the 20 to 25 pound range. Vern

    Vern,
    I've fished that area before. The Ohio is a great place to fish and if the fish aren't biting, it's a great place to sight see. I caught a BIG blue cat, but the guy I was with didn't have a scale. He guessed it at 50lbs. I have a fishing guide who takes me around and lets me out fish him. He hasn't taken me in quite a while, he usually has a long waiting list for his services. Maybe when I get over this cold, I'll be put on the list. Congrats on the fish. "FISH ON"

    Your wife:big_smile_2:

    Thanks, Honey. Well, I had another great night on the Ohio. I launched about 6:30 and went after some bait. I had some nice shad when I started fishing. I ended up fishing three spots and landing 7 fish. The first catch was the biggest of the night, a flathead around twenty pounds. Then I moved to another hole and got 4 channels that were all under 5 pounds. Then the third hole produced another small channel and a six pound flathead. All the fish were caught on cut shad except the first one and he came on a 8 inch shad hooked live. Vern

    I took Chuck out for his birthday to day. I figured we could spend the afternoon on the river. Well, he said he had a good time............................. and that he appreciated me showing him how to do it. We took my boat for a change, which he said gave me the rear seat advantage. Well, maybe he is right C4-0 Vlparrish-12. I got eight channels, three small flatheads and a nice 30 lb blue. Chuck did get the priveledge of catching a dandy gar though. We were using freshcut shad.

    12 - 0 on my birthday what a brother , thats why i bought a boat he is not a guide for the front seat man he sets up so he is on the fish . the only way i could have been on them would have been to cast straight over his head and out the back of the boat :lol: thanks vern for showing me how to catch fish :roll_eyes:

    I got out on the Ohio this evening. The water was high and the river had a lot of drift. I ended up with a decent blue, 6 channels and a small striper. Vern

    My dad and I got on the water today around noon. We had trounble getting bait but after an hour we had enough shad to try them a while. We ended up catching a channel a piece, both in the five pound range. Dad had a nice one slam a rod and got to fight him a minute before he pulled the hook out. Vern
