    Good luck Bill, and of course be safe. My oldest son Josh is comin over from Martinsville tonight, we are gonna spend the day(and night) on the Wabash saturday. Got some gills and skip jack thawing in the fridge as week speak. We are probably gonna launch at Hudsonville or Darwin Ferry. The Wabash is at about 12' and on the rise, looks like the White is about 10.5 and on the rise too. Should be good cattin.

    Man I tore em up- but narry a single flattie over 10 pounds. I lost count... 12 of em I think- I've never caught so many tiny baby flatties, some almost small enough for bait..... caught 5 or 6 channels (I think it was) all about 3-5 pounders. The river wasnt anywhere near what I wanted it to be. I probably will just give it a rest until after the spawn now. Nothing but nursery sized flatties have been taking bait the last 3 times I went out.,,, I'tll be a long wait!

    Good luck Barry and Josh. Let us how ya do. and be careful guys.

    Personally I like to fish flooded back waters when the river is way up, but normally the usual places like creek mouths and current breaks are good. The rising water puts the catfish on the feed.

    The other night I fished some retention ponds that connect to the river when the water comes up. Had lots of luck catching fat channels on cut skipjack under a float. Biggest was 8 lbs.
