    I have heard from my nephew who lives at Taylorsville people are catching most flathead cats at vanburen area, look into the channel of the river and go slowly to observe all the largest fish on the bottom on your sonar unit...Usually if i can find more than one in a 30 foot area i will ancor about 30 feet above them and let the current carry the sent to them, usually in about 25 feet of water..Hope this will help ya some..

    that does help. can I borrow your boat and sonar? LOL! Yeah I am stuck on the bank for now untill the other bank gets a little better and I can get me a rig. Thanks for the tip though I will have to try that one day. Is there any good bank spots in that area? I have never really fished out there before. So I am totally clueless as to where fishing is usually done on the bank or otherwise. I'm in louisville and usually do night fishing especially in the heat.

    Yes my friend...If you goto the Vanburen Ramp, one good spot for night fishing is go all the way to the end of the parking lot at the u-turn and out in the point of that area is a great place for cats...Also as you come upon the parking lot and the boat ramp look off to the (left-hand) side...My nephew and i have fished there many times off the bank with high success...Look over the railing and you will see a bank... If you look farther you will see the old road bed still there which follows the river for quite a ways with lots of great places along it to fish from the bank and camp out for the night and still close to the parking lot to use the bathroom...You will surely see where anglers are bankfishing there and most are locals using these spots cause many people from Louisville and lexington and frankfort dont know about it...I hope this will help ya some and maybe sometime we could hook up for a day on the water...Good luck and be safe!

    I still haven't made it down there yet but I can't wait. When I go do you think that I should live or cut bait. It will probably be blue gill unless I get a cast net before then. I have never used one so I geuss I will have to do alot of practicing before I go out on the water.
