    heard the cats are doing so well right now down there. I'll be fishing in Galconda IL on the Ohio and was thinking about setting some trot lines and or do some rod and reel fishing. Any advice for my trip would be appreciated, thanx.

    ive been fishing the Ohio River for at least 6 or 7 years now and i must say that right now (up here by the Mc Alpine) locks they are slow!!! right before spawning period we tore the females up, hearing our clickers getting just about completely spooled and catching them... my advise is to stick with any type of shad and use big chunks... throw into channels is your best bet
