    when the water hits 70 here most of the big fish are done for a couple weeks to a month... you will get lucky and catch them now and them but fish small baits and move often because they wont be in a big hurry to find your bait so you will have to go to them..... with u being right in owensboro you just need to switch over to fishing for flatheads when the blues turn off...

    Find out were they are spawning and put some bullheads on as bait.Bullheads are known to be the biggest destroyers of blue and flats spawing nest.They will attack a bullhead like you never seen.

    Thanks Jesse,,,,Good to know. Like when Bass spawn and don't want to bite. Put a plastic lizard in their bed and hold on!!
