    Spent last week fishing the Ohio out of Derby Indiana. The river was way up (about 13 feet) and the debris was unbelievable. However, the weather all week was great and the fish seemed to like the extra water, we caught fish every day. Big fish for the week was 36lbs. We lost count of the actual number we caught. All were blues except for one channel and one small flathead. I got the biggest kick from the smallest fish we caught. Got it on a small circle hook while fishing for bait in a creek using night crawler. I am claiming it as a B.O.C. record as the smallest fairly hooked catfish as I don't know of one smaller...W
