    hi
    im failry new here and im a 16 year old who just wants to catch some catfish i dotn care what kind of what size

    I live in owensboro and I have fished cannelton a few times and had decent luck catching smaller 3-5 pound channels with chicken liver

    But Cannelton is perty far away and with gas the way it is
    i was wondering if there are any good places to fish from shore near owensboro

    Try English park the water is good and deep along the wall, I always mark a bunch of fish there. I have seen alot of nice fish caught there. If you can get shad or shipjacks you will catch more fish. after dark you can get shad at the old down town ramp after dark under the lights with a cast net. If you dont have any luck you can get frozen shad at Frank Millers. Hope this helps.

    if you go out east 60 to the trailer court called lamplite it well be on a road on the left it takes you to the river there well be a gate there but you can park in it. on the side of the field and you got to walk down to the river. got lot's of bank cats there over the years.....
