Let me start by saying this site is VERY informative! I'm very happy I stumbled upon it. I've always been a "Pay Lake" guy. Just got tired of the $$$ and lack of good size fish. So, my dad and I have decided 2 venture out to the Ohio and Salt Rivers. Here's my question(s). I talked to a few guys that I've met at the boat dock there in West Point. They all said use chicken. They ddnt specify if it was "sented" or anything...but do any of you "river guys" use chicken, or strickly shad? And, what's your opinion on the Salt River? I have a boat, just the "old man" perfers bank fishin'. Thanx.
