    Well, I was gonna try to make another trip to the James this winter. But, I think I will save some money and head down to the Cincy area to finally meet up with you folks and hopefully catch some good blues! This will be a new way of fishing for me, and look forward to learning how you boys drift them "over-sized channels"!:wink: That was for you Travis!:smile2: Probably make a 4 or 5 day trip out of it, and will bring my boat unless someone can fish 4 or 5 straight days with me on their boat. Will need to figure out the bait situation as well! Not sure on the dates yet, but will try to plan the trip during the prime bite! Let me know when I should try for this, and any help will be appreciated! Thanks... rollo

    Hell if you guys come to Cincinnati, I will come fishing. I am a shore fisherman though. I could use some tips. I have always wanted to take a trip to the Meldahl dam.

    Hey if you come down, you knwo there are a few of us who always can at least tell you the conditions and where to get bait at about any time, Bait is starting to get a bit thin here since the cold spell hit but still around, just have to work a bit harder to find em. Perhaps you could line up several day trips with local guys during the week and just leave your boat at home, that way you get to see how everyones rig is set up. I know I can get out some durring the week as can a few of these other guys, might just work out for you.

    Look foward to seeing you down here Jason. Usually in the winter time I am not drifting much, if at all simply because the river is up and crankin. Typically I love to fish the Dec-Jan months right in the peak of the winter pattern, fish become very predictable as long as the weather stays consistant.

    Days off during the week for me are nearly impossible, hopefully you will start or end your trip during the weekend so I can take you out personally. See ya in the snow!:smile2::wink:
