Hello fellow catfisherman. I just relocated to Fort Knox after a year long tour in South Korea. I am oringinally from Wisconsin. I fish cats in Wisconsin alot. Mainly channel and flatheads. Here is my dillema. I am slowly scouting around the ohio river finding holes as best as I can. The Salt River looks promising. Hooked into a giant cat in mid-may on shrimp. (shrimp is a new presentation for me) Now on the Ohio aspect of fishing. Made several trips to cannelton dam. Fished on the sandbar. Noticed the depth varies, and the bottom is gravel / sand mixture. Have not had any luck here though. Presentations included: shad, shiner, chub, shrimp, and sucker. Both in live and cut bait variants. Ranging in size from 4 to 8 inches. I thought that the spawning season and a low water temperature might be affecting cannelton. Another spot that I have found is a edge roughly 75 feet and 50 feet wide just off the main current south of Otter Creek. It's very rocky, but its smooth. My best judgement on depth here is between 12 to 15 feet. Have not landed anything spectacular but the cats are here. In the process of purchasing a Tracker Deep V-16. I like the Deep V for its stability in big water. Is this a good choice for the Ohio? My rigs. In my past experience I have always used a three-way set-up. The lead line is 18 inches of 20 lb mono having the hook line 8 to 12 inches. Wondering if it would be better to use the slip sinker rig as the cats seem finicky. Another presentation I want to try that is killer on the Chippewa River is Jigging. I'll explain this one. I use a 1 ounce heavy duty jighead, tie on a trailer hook with 20 lb mono or braided nylon. (prefer braided nylon) I hook the blugill in the tail close to the anal fin and the trailer hook just above the gil plate. Find a shear edge with current keeping your drag as low as possible cast up stream and bump the bottom. This does produce vicious strikes. My question is, where can I find places on the ohio or feeder creeks where I can try my presentation out? Any help would be appreciated.
