    could this be a good fishing spot?..... i live on the ky/wv border and about 4 years ago the state pushed a section of the tug river farther over into ky for some reason or another. they bult a rock wall with bolders the size of small cars and when they left thet just took out the rocks in the center of the wall witch left about a 10 feet gap. now when you have a river that is 75 feet wide in this area channeld into a 10 or 15 foot hole its going to be moveing fast. the current on the down river side is very strong but to my understanding it had made a nice hole too. on the up river side the water is slow moveing and about 3 to 4 feet deep. ive only went fishing there once and had a large creek chub in the down river side ab out 45 feet below the rock wall. got one bite in 2 hrs but that bite broke 50lb test spiderwier after about a 20 sec run. could it have been a flat head? does this sound like a spot for flatties? im new a this and have only caught a few small channels nothing over 3 or 4 lbs.. thanks for any help.

    with the area you descibed it could be any catfish. Are there slower pools on one are both sides of the faster water? If so I would try a bait right on the edge of the fast and slow water area. This spot does sound oretty good though.

    That definatly sounds like a good spot. Breaking line is a bad thing but happen but you know there are some big fish there. I have never been a fan of Spiderwire though. Good luck and report back next time out there.
